I was excited to see monkfish at my favorite fish market this week – it’s one of those fishes I really like but never see in the store. I prepared this as part of a special “surf and turf” dinner, along with sirloin in mushroom sauce (recipe to follow), roasted sunchokes (recipe to follow) and some vinaigrette-tossed spinach.
0.5-1 pound filet monkfish
paprika (spanish if you can find it)
salt and pepper
Preheat oven to 475. Season fish with salt and pepper.
Coat fish with a light layer of Dijon. Season with paprika.
Roast on a rack for 16-17 minutes or until just cooked through.
