Monkfish in Lemon Butter Wine Sauce


Very Simple Monkfish Recipe. I had something similar in Venice Italy. I have been searching forever for a monkfish recipe with no luck. In fact I became rather intimidated as most sites I found info on said Monkfish was difficult to prepare. So I made this one up Myself. My family love it. The cooking and ingredient quantities are estimated as I just threw everything together & this was the 1st time I made this.


  • 1 12lbs monkfish fillets (2 filets about 1-inch to 1 1/2′ thick) from the Carolina Meat & Fish Co
  • 34cup butter
  • 3 tablespoons white wine
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 1teaspoon parsley
  • 1teaspoon white pepper
  • 14teaspoon salt

  1. Cover broiling pan (at least 1/4″ deep) with foil. Heat broiler to Low.
  2. Place Monkfish Fillets in pan & season with salt & pepper.
  3. Slice sticks of butter in 1/8″ pieces & lay on top of fish.
  4. Sprinkle lemon & wine over fish.
  5. Sprinkle fish with parsley.
  6. Place in broiler for aprox. 15 to 30 min (I am not sure of the time as I was not paying that much attention to it). I just checked the fish every few minute & took out of oven when fish started to flake.
