Fish of the Week: Monkfish
Seasonal Fish of the Week
Despite being a terrifying looking creature the monkfish (or anglerfish as it is also known) is beloved by chefs for its meaty white flesh that is highly versatile. Monkfish is a delicious indulgence and with Sailbrand you can be assured of the best quality available, we source ours from our buyer on the quay in Shetland every single day. Can any other supplier tell you that?
It’s wonderful roasted on the bone, or stuffed and wrapped, even as an alternative to scampi, the list is never-ending. Check out the recipe we’ve included below. Don’t forget we are here live on the phone if you want to discuss prices or any of our special offers.
Also in season this month:
