Monkfish with hazelnuts

I had a fantastic dish the other day which was Monkfish with hazelnuts, crisp green beans and slithers of red pepper. It was dressed with hazelnut oil and dijon mustard. The monkfish was cut into short strips. It was really delicious and I am now tracking down a recipe.

That sounds delish, Jon. Hope someone can post a recipe, as I adore monkfish.

Edited to add: I just went googling & came across this one (Roasted Monkfish with Romesco Sauce). Hope it is close to the recipe you're seeking.

jon, was the monkfish crusted in the nuts, or were they a "side" component of the dish?

nope, not even close licia. a monkfish is an incredibly ugly beast of the sea, dark grey and lumpy, with a huge mouth. it looks like a deep sea monster, but it has delicious bright white flesh. a tilapia is a fresh water fish, resembling a cross between a bass and a bluegill. it has beige/pink meat that is a lot more firm than monkfish.

Along similar lines, I am making Sea Bass crusted with macadamia nuts and a citrus beurre blanc for dinner tomorrow. I love nut crusted fish!

Thanks - its a great looking recipe and I'll give it a try.

Buckytom - it wasn't nut encrusted but I agree it is a great way to cook fish. It was more of a sprinkling of nut fragments.

Not sure I would compare a monkfish to a Carp. In terms of taste - definitely not.

99.9999% of the talipia available in grocery stores is farmed.

Tilapia is a variety of cichlid species.... many folks keep them as pets in their aquariums.
