Chilli, sugar, allspice berries, lime zest and soy sauce combine in this recipe to create a sweet, sticky glaze over firm, meaty monkfish. Serve with sweet potato mash for a delicious, quick midweek dinner.


  • 2 x 170g monkfish fillets, skinned and boned
  • 50g light brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp. soy sauce
  • 1 red chilli
  • Juice and zest of 1 lime
  • 1/4 tsp. crushed allspice berries


  1. Preheat the grill to a high heat. Grill the fish for 3-4 minutes on either side.

  2. Meanwhile, combine the sugar, soy sauce, red chilli, lime juice, lime zest and allspice berries.

  3. Spoon the mixture over the top of the fish and grill for a further 2-3 minutes.

You could use lemon juice or lemon zest if you prefer, and you could also use a green chilli in place of a red chilli if you prefer.
