Monkfish Recipes - Kebabs

Monkfish Recipes Kebabs

Monkfish recipes made into kebabs are a wonderful and fun way of serving fish.

This recipe is ideal for Monk fish or other firm white fish such as swordfish or tuna. Serve these kebabs with a fresh green salad, a pilaf rice and tzatziki.

Lemon Olive Oil

To make the kebabs you will need either metal or wooden skewers. If using wooden ones, soak in water before threading the food onto them to stop the fish sticking whilst cooking.


750g monkfish
1 red onion
1 green pepper (capsicum)
1 red pepper (capsicum)
15 fresh bay leaves
15 large prawns, peeled
4 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
4 tablespoons lemon juice
2 garlic cloves, chopped finely
freshly ground salt and pepper
lemon wedges to serve


Cut the fish into cubes about 2.5 cm each
Cut the peppers into similar size pieces.
Slice the red onion into quarters and then into half again

Make the marinade
Add the lemon juice, olive oil, garlic and salt and pepper to a bowl and whisk until combined.
Put the onion and pepper slices, prawns and monkfish into the bowl and toss in the marinade until it is all coated.
Put in the fridge and leave for at least 2-3 hours or overnight if necessary.

Thread the monkfish, prawns, red onion, red and green peppers and bay leaves onto the skewers, alternating the monkfish and prawns between the red and green peppers to give a bright colour and variety.

You can cook these under the grill or on a barbecue.
Baste with any remaining marinade whilst cooking.
Cook until the fish is tender and cooked through.
Serve with lemon wedges.
