Monkfish

A large majority of our Monkfish is caught sustainably by local skipper, Danny Phillips, at Cadgwith Cove. He catches the fish in tangle nets allowing him to pull them aboard with minimal or no damage to the animal.

Monkfish have huge heads which account for half their body weight. Only the tails are sold from which we remove the membrane and skin (double skinning). The flesh is firm, meaty and similar in flavour to Langoustines or Scampi. You can purchase whole tails or have them filleted.

Available fresh as follows:

  • 300-500g Whole Tails
  • 1-2kg Whole Tails
  • 180-200g Fillet Portion

Fish in Season:

All year round.

Alternatives:

Turbot or John Dory
