Cooking: What is a firm fish that does not fall apart when you cook it?

    A thicker piece of fish will be less likely to fall apart. 

    Thinner fish like sole, tilapia will flake apart easily. 

    Ones you can get as thicker cuts will hold together. Like Salmon, tuna, swordfish. 

    The "problem" is that most fish will "flake apart" when cooked and this will be more apparent if you over cook the fish. 

    Leaving the skin on will help hold it together.

    Monkfish and swordfish are two types of firm fish.

    Primarily the ones that have the word 'Fish' in their names, like Monkfish or Swordfish, but I don't know if that was done on purpose.

    I think swordfish would be a good choice.

    Monkfish apparently.... never tried it but it's always described as firm and meaty in cooking shows
