Monkfish, Bacon and Mushroom Skewers recipe

Preparation Time: 20 minutes | Cooking Time: 15 minutes

The perfect BBQ dish, this recipe combines meaty monkfish and mushrooms and deliciously salty bacon. The fish is marinated in oil, garlic and lemon for extra punch and flavour.


  • 800g monkfish, skinned and boned
  • 225g thick streaky bacon
  • 125ml olive oil
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 1 tbsp. lemon juice
  • 1 tsp. dried oregano
  • 200g button mushrooms
  • Salt and pepper


  1. Cube the monkfish. Cube the bacon. Crush the garlic clove. Combine olive oil, garlic, lemon juice, oregano and salt and pepper in a bowl. Add the monkfish and toss to coat, then cover and leave to sit for 15 minutes. Drain, reserving the marinade.

  2. Thread the bacon, monkfish and mushrooms onto soaked wooden skewers until the skewers are full. Brush with the marinade and season the skewers.

  3. Grill the skewers under a medium heat for 10-15 minutes until the fish is cooked through, basting with the marinade frequently.

Use smoky bacon in the skewers for the best flavour. If you like, marinate the mushrooms as well as the monkfish. Recipe serves 4.
