Grilled Monkfish with Garlic

Monkfish is unique. It tastes and is similar in texture to lobster which means that its culinary potential is incredible. This recipe is rustic and simple, the spices bring out the taste of the Monkfish while the garlic intensifies the taste. It tastes seriously amazing.

We recommend serving with grilled potatoes and green salad. Note that when grilling, an aluminum tray is recommended since the oil may burn if you put the Monkfish directly on the grill.
