Rearranging Nobu’s Baked Monkfish

Previously, on tastingmenu.wordpress.com – * https://tastingmenu.wordpress.com/2013/06/29/nobu-miami-marinated-grilled-short-ribs/ So I had some leftover shallot tosa-zu saw from a few days ago and was wondering what to do with it until I came across Baked Monkfish Medley With Tosa-Zu (Nobu: The Cookbook, p. 102).
