What specie of fish is known as poor man’s lobster?

Answer:

Monkfish

Due to its not so good looking appearance, very few consumers would touch the fish. This specie of fish back in the '70s was very cheap for this reason. However, fishermen asked a lady called Julia Child to prepare a dish using this fish. She called the dish "Poor man's lobster" but it also became a nickname for the monkfish. This way, the dish, and the fish got popularity and it's now high in demand in the market.
