Asparagus and Monkfish

Dinner on Friday started with roasted asparagus wrapped in proscuitto and tapenade. The main course was monkfish with almond sauce and rapini. We've made this twice in the past month — it's fantastic.

However, this dish raises an important question. Do you avoid eating things based on how cute they are? Like rabbits and Golden Retrievers for example. If so, how do you feel about eating monkfish, which looks incredibly frightening? I don't exclude cute or frightening food from my diet, but I do feel bad eating monkfish since I learned it's been overfished. Yeesh, is there anything we can enjoy without guilt?

Here's a guide to selecting sustainable seafood.
