From the Cornish Seas to your Plate: Recipes for Monkfish


Monkfish Wrapped in Bacon

A classic combination pairing the sweet meaty texture of fresh Cornish monkfish with salty bacon. 

Goes really well with a range of sides


To make this recipe you will need:

      500g monkfish fillets, cut into chunks
      8 slices of streaky bacon
      2 tablespoons olive oil
      Salt and pepper to taste
      Fresh parsley to garnish

And here’s how to do it…


  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C (400°F) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Season the monkfish chunks with salt and pepper.
  3. Wrap each monkfish chunk with a slice of bacon and secure with a toothpick.
  4. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat.
  5. Add the wrapped monkfish to the skillet and cook for 2-3 minutes on each side until the bacon is crispy.
  6. Transfer the monkfish to the prepared baking sheet and bake in the preheated oven for 10-12 minutes or until the fish is cooked through.
  7. Serve the monkfish wrapped in bacon hot, garnished with fresh parsley.
