Bacon-Wrapped Monkfish

Bacon-Wrapped Monkfish

Ready in 30 mins

 Ingredients

  • 400g monkfish tail, sliced into 2 fillets
  • 2 sprigs fresh
  • leaves stripped
  • 12 rashers (about 140g/5oz) dry-cure rindless smoked streaky bacon
  • 2 large tomato,
  • halved
  • 3-4 tbsp vinaigrette
  • 225g bag watercress
  • and salad leaves

Method

  1. Lay 1 monkfish tail fillet on a board, sprinkle with thyme leaves and season. Lay the other fillet on top with tapering tip in the opposite direction, so each end has one thick and one thin end butted together.

  2. Lay the bacon on a board, slightly overlapping and put the monkfish in the centre. Wrap the fish in the rashers so that it holds together quite firmly.

  3. Heat the grill for 3-5 mins. Line the grill pan, lay the monkfish on it, with the bacon joins underneath.

  4. Grill for about 7-10 mins until the bacon starts to crisp, then carefully turn over and cook for another 7-10 mins. At the same time, grill the tomato halves. As soon as the monkfish feels firm when pressed on top, remove and leave to stand for 5 mins. Save any pan juices from the paper and drizzle into the vinaigrette. Cut the monkfish into medallions, slightly on the diagonal. Dress the watercress salad with the vinaigrette and juices and divide between four plates. Place monkfish on top, season with pepper and serve tomatoes alongside. Nice with baby new potatoes.
