How to cook Grilled Monkfish Tail with Mustard Mash Potato
- 10 ounces monkfish tail
- 4 scallions, finely chopped
- 1/2 pound potatoes (I used Maris Piper)
- 1/2 eggplant, chopped into small chunks
- 1 clove of garlic, finely chopped
- 2 ounces green olives (pitted), quartered
- 5 ounces cherry tomatoes
- 1 tablespoon salted butter
- 2 teaspoons olive oil
- 1 tbsp wholegrain mustard
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon pepper
- Peel the potatoes and place them in a saucepan full of salted boiling water for 15 to 20 minutes. (You'll know that they're done by poking them with a blunt knife - if the knife pierces through the potato easily then they're done.)
- Heat a separate frying pan over a high heat and add the olive oil. After around 30 seconds, add the tomatoes and cover the pan (if you don't have a lid just use tin foil). Leave them for 10 minutes on a medium heat.
- Place the monkfish tail on a griddle pan or a grilling tray and put it under the grill (on a high heat). Grill the fish for 5 to 6 minutes on each side.
- Meanwhile, once the tomatoes have softened in your frying pan, add the scallions, eggplant, garlic and olives. Leave them to fry in the covered pan for another 10 minutes, stirring regularly.
- Don't forget about your potatoes at this point - drain them and rinse lightly in cold water. Now mash the potato, using either a potato ricer or a masher (I prefer to rice my potatoes for a smoother texture). Once this is done, add the butter, a pinch of salt/pepper and the mustard; and mix well. If you feel that the mash is slightly too dry, add a drop of olive oil.
- Remove the fish from the grill, plate it up and cover in the tomato-eggplant sauce from your frying pan. Add a side of mustard mash potato.
