Buy monfish online from the UK's leading fishmonger

Monkfish is a very ugly fish, with a head that’s half of its weight - all that’s sold is the tail. The flesh is great, it’s firm and meaty. It was used as a cheap scampi substitute before chefs began to realise how good it was.

As fish dishes go, monkfish is one of the best, often baked, frequently wrapped in prosciutto or other thinly-sliced ham. It is robust enough to be roasted with a black pepper coating as well. Check our recipes for monkfish.
