Monkfish Medallions with Mediterranean Vegetable Stew

Prep time: 10 minutes Cooking time: 40 minutes Serves: 4 Recipe by: Jane Devonshire

This is tray bake dish, so saving on the washing up and once the veg is chopped, it pretty much takes care of itself. I love to use Monkfish in this recipe but other white meaty fish, like Halibut, works well too. 

You can serve it on its own, but it is also lovely with a chunky of crusty bread and accompanied with a fresh salad.

Monkfish Medallions With Mediterranean Vegetable Stew 770X60

The method

  1. Chop all the vegetables including potatoes to a little smaller than the size of your cherry tomatoes and add to a large roasting tray with the olive oil and lemon juice and tomato passata.  Chop the aubergine last and make sure it is tossed in the oil and lemon to stop it browning. And the tomato passatta too.
  2. Add the Grated Garlic, Dried herbs, salt and a good grind of black pepper
  3. Mix together thoroughly and put into an oven gas mark 200 for 30 – 40 minutes, turning once during the process. The veg should be cooked through but still retain their shape.
  4. Add the Monkfish medallions and cook for a further 10 minutes until the fish is cooked through but still juicy.
  5. Remove from oven and toss all together making sure everything is coated in sauce you may need to add a little water at this stage to bring it all together. Taste add lemon, salt and pepper as required and serve immediately.
