Fresh Cornish Monkfish Tail

From £26.25 Per Tail £40.38 per KG

In the last 20 years Monkfish has become one of the most popular species available. Also known as the anglerfish, when whole it looks pretty terrifying. The heads are routinely removed at sea and usually only the tail is sold. With a single bone running through the tail and a robust meaty texture, it is both versatile and delicious. The South West fishery, where we source from, is the one British fishery showing sustainable levels of Monkfish. We offer 650g - 750g tails and can send them whole skin on, whole skin off or skinnned and filleted (off the bone), depending on your preference and how you plan to cook the fish.

  • We source dayboat fish from markets including Newlyn and Plymouth
  • Monkfish stocks in Cornwall in good health and recently added to 'Recommended' list in Cornwall Good Seafood Guide
  • Good source of Omega 3 and provides many essential vitamins and minerals
  • Robust and meaty fish, it can be treated in a similar way to a joint of meat

One kilogram will be enough as a starter for 4 or a main course for 2

Recipes & Cooking

Monkfish is a very firm fish, as there is only one bone running down the centre of the body. That makes it robust and a great addition to a stew or a curry. It also works very well on the BBQ and can even be cooked on the bone similarly to a shoulder of lamb. One Chef we know coats a skinless tail with a curry paste, and then roasts and carves it like a joint.
