Zesty Monkfish Skewers 

Prep Time: 5 minutes | Cook Time: 15 minutes



  • 1 1/2 lb monkfish
  • 2 limes
  • 1 jalapenño
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • Salt and pepper, to taste


Chop the monkfish into 1 inch cubes.

Juice the limes, and process the juice along with the olive oil, jalapeño, and garlic in a food processor. Add a little salt and pepper, if desired as well.

Pour this mixture over the fish and let marinate at room temperature for 20 minutes, or cover and refrigerate for 1 hour.

Meanwhile, soak the skewers, if you're using wooden ones. Preheat the grill to medium. Monkfish is best when thoroughly cooked, so we want a temperature that will cook the inside without drying the outside.

Place the monkfish cubes on the skewers. Sprinkle with salt and pepper, if desired. Grill for about 3 to 4 minutes on each of the cube's 4 sides. When cooked through, the monkfish will be browned and tender.

Serve right away and enjoy!
