Garlic Baked Monkfish Recipe

Serves/Makes: 4


  • 2 pounds thick (about 2 inches) monkfish fillets
  • 10 garlic cloves, coarsely chopped
  • 1/4 cup softened butter
  • Several thyme sprigs or 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 9 tablespoons thyme vinegar or white wine vinegar
How to cook Garlic Baked Monkfish:
  • Use half the butter to coat a shallow baking dish just large enough to hold the fish in a single layer, and sprinkle with the garlic and thyme. Lay monkfish fillets on the herbs and dot with the remaining butter.
  • Bake at 400°F (200°C) for 5 minutes, and then add 3 tablespoons of vinegar.
  • Now bake and baste twice more until all the vinegar is used. Then bake for another 5 to 15 minutes, basting every 5 minutes, until the fish is opaque.
  • (Cut through the thickest part to test. Do not let the fish become flaky or it will lose its lobsterlike texture.) Strain the sauce through a sieve, using a wooden spoon to push the garlic through the screening.
