About this recipe: Monkfish tastes somewhat similiar to lobster, but is a lot less expensive. This dish is also healthier than fried fish, but still has a nice crumbly crust. Substitute any other firm white fish if monkfish is not available.


Serves: 4 

  • 4 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 3/4 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 4 (175g) monkfish fillets
  • 4 tablespoons dried breadcrumbs

Prep:5min  ›  Cook:20min  ›  Ready in:25min 

  1. Preheat oven to 180 C / Gas mark 4.
  2. In a small bowl, combine melted butter, paprika, salt and pepper.
  3. Place the fish fillets on a non-stick or parchment lined baking tray. Brush the fillets evenly with the butter mixture and sprinkle the breadcrumbs over the top of each fillet.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven for 15 to 20 minutes, or until the fish flakes easily with a fork.


For an even healthier dish, substitute olive oil for the melted butter.

Used cod instead of monkfish and it turned out great. Quick and simple to do and a lot more healthier than frying, tasted good. Will be using this method again next time I fancy fish 'n chips. - 30 Jan 2015
