Garlic & Lemon Monkfish recipe

Preparation Time: 20 minutes | Cooking Time: 10 minutes

Sometimes, fresh fish only needs few ingredients to make it taste outstanding. This dish combines meaty monkfish, garlic, lemon and tarragon to create a simple meal that still has bags of flavour. Serve with lemon wedges on the side.


  • 4 x 150g boneless, skinless monkfish fillets
  • Small handful freshly chopped tarragon
  • 1 garlic clove
  • Zest and juice of 1 large lemon
  • 2 tbsp. olive oil


  1. Crush the garlic clove. Combine the oil, lemon juice, lemon zest, garlic clove, tarragon and monkfish in a bowl. Stir to coat the monkfish. Season with salt and pepper. Cover and marinade for ten minutes.

  2. Heat the grill to high. Remove the monkfish from the marinade, lay on a baking sheet and grill for 7-8 minutes until the fish is flaking gently. Serve immediately.

You can use lime juice and zest if you prefer and for a little spice, try adding a minced red chilli. Recipe serves 4.
