Oooh, monkfish is yummy. DS had it for dinner tonight with potatoes and cabbage.

I just panfried it with a little oil and lots of seasoning. I cut it into smaller pieces so i knew it was cooked and then just add a sauce of your choice. A tomato and mushroom sauce would be good.

DH serves it in the restaurant with rosti, sauteed spinach and a cannellini emulsion!

Fry it in a pan and finish off in the oven.
