As monkfish was the only option at the supermarket, we decided to have a go at making our own scampi. It was surprisingly easy to make too.
SERVES TWO (as a starter): Cut around 180g of monkfish into 8 pieces (approx 2cm each). The monkfish bone is easy to remove, alternatively you can ask the fishmonger to take it out. Season with salt, pepper and even add a bit spice if you fancy e.g. curry, chilli, smoked paprika then flour, egg and breadcrumb them. We used Panko breadcrumbs for two reasons - they deliver a light and crunchy result, and we had them in the cupboard. We served ours with mushy peas, to which we added a teaspoon of mint sauce. Shallow fry the scampi until golden brown - 4 to 5 minutes should be enough.
