These kebabs are a fishy take on traditional barbecued fare, with juicy tomatoes and fresh rosemary.

Meaty monkfish is great for skewering and grilling on the barbecue. This simple recipe provides essential fatty acids and lean protein from the monkfish, whilst tomatoes give a burst of vitamins and phytonutrients.

Cooking Method

  1. Soak 8 wooden skewers in a glass of water (turn after 5 minutes) or laid flat in a roasting tin of water. This prevents the wood from burning on the BBQ.
  2. Put the oil, garlic and one sprig of rosemary in a small pan and heat gently. Once the oil is bubbling, turn off the heat and leave the pan to cool. Remove rosemary and blitz the oil and garlic with a hand blender.
  3. Thread tomatoes and chunks of monkfish on to the skewer (you can also thread rosemary inside the tomato at the same time for extra herby flavour). Use a silicone brush to coat the kebabs with the infused oil.
  4. Cook the kebabs on the barbecue, turning regularly until slightly golden and tomatoes begin to char (roughly 8 mins).
