Monkfish ( Angler Fish ) with Fresh Peaches Rhodes Style ...

1.5 kilos or 3 pounds of Cod or Monkfish or other firm white flesh fish
400 grams of fresh peaches, peeled and depitted
1/2 cup Evoo
3 shallots minced finely, Spring Onion or Scallion or 1 large onion of choice

salt and black, peppercorns ground to taste
1/2 large bunch of fresh mint, or other herb of choice, leaves only sliced very finely Julienne

1) Have Fish Monger cut the fish into large squares or strips
2) wash well, the peaches, peel skin, remove pits, and slice into cubes not too thick
3) heat the Evoo in large saucepan and sauté the shallots minced and the garlic until tender, add the peach slices and sauté. Season with salt and Pepper.
