Grilled Monkfish Tail with Mustard Mash Potato Recipe

Serves/Makes: 2 servings


  • 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
How to cook Grilled Monkfish Tail with Mustard Mash Potato:
  • 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.
