We've covered plenty of seafood in our Michelin chefs cook series, but we've yet to explore the delicious culinary depths of monkfish.
This juicy and robust fish has flesh similar to a lobster, hence it's nickname - poor man's lobster, and a mild flavour that lends itself to a variety of cooking techniques, from roasting to pan frying.
