Magnificent Roasted Monkfish

Total Time
Prep 15 mins
Cook 29 mins

This recipe calls for monkfish, but I am sure it would work as well with another firm white fish, i.e.cod. It is wonderful served with garlic mash potato and arugula with a little balsamic vinegar drizzled over the fish and arugula.

Simple dish and tastes amazing, fairly low fat too which is a bonus. I serve on mash with mange tout and carrots or asparagus
