  1. In a resealable plastic bag, mix the salt, pepper, Cajun seasoning, and flour. Place the monkfish in the bag, seal, and shake to lightly coat.
  2. Heat the oil and melt the butter in a skillet over medium heat. Place the monkfish in the skillet, and cook for about 3 minutes. Mix in the garlic, tomato, and mushrooms, and continue cooking 3 minutes. Mix in the wine and parsley. Continue to cook and stir 2 minutes, or until the monkfish flakes easily with a fork.

Changed the recipe slightly by frying off the monkfish in the seasoned flour to make it crispy, then removed it from the pan and added the wine and boiled it down with the rest of the seasoned flour and added some french mustard. Then I baked the fish with the mushrooms and tomoatoes (also added some olives and sundried tomoatoes) in the wine sauce. It was delicious. My fiance said it was the best white fish he had ever had!



this was my first time cooking monkfish, and i'm totally hooked. i took the advise of some other reviewers (and that of my fishmonger) and removed the fish from the pan after browning it. i added it back to the garlic, tomato & mushroom mix with the wine and parsley. served it with tagliatelle and steamed sugarsnaps. great introduction to monkfish! :)



A very good basic recipe for creating an 'ala provincial' dish. But I seasoned the flour, and added a bit more of white wine and garlic. It turned out terrific!
