    Italian Recipes Oven Roasted Italian Monkfish

    This authentic Italian style monk fish recipe was developed to reflect the flavors of Italy and their use of the fish monkfish. Often known as "poor mans lobster" this recipe offers rich aromatic flavors and is lower in fat than many of fish recipes, a real winner.

    Italian Style Oven Roasted Monkfish

    2 pounds of monkfish (cut into medallions)
    2 large Idaho potatoes
    4 large shallots
    4 large Roma tomatoes
    1 cup of fennel bulb (julienne)
    2 tablespoons of fresh minced garlic
    1 teaspoon of fresh minced thyme
    1 teaspoon of fresh oregano
    3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
    1 tablespoon of sea salt or kosher salt
    pinch of ground black pepper
    1 lemon cut into quarters for garnish


    Preheat an oven to 375 degrees.

    Clean the monkfish and cut into medallion sized pieces about 3/4 an inch think. Place in a stainless steel bowl and season with sea salt, ground black pepper, 1 tablespoon garlic and 1 tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil. Mix well, refrigerate and reserve.

    Peel the potatoes and slice them into thin coin like pieces, reserve in a bowl of cold water. Remove the stem from the roma tomatoes and cut in half lengthwise, gently squeeze any excess water and seeds from the tomato. Next slice the tomato half's into thin strips and reserve. Peel the shallots and slice then into thin strips and reserve. Remove the core from the fennel bulb and slice in half. Take each half of the fennel bulb and slice it in half and reserve the fennel pieces.

    Assemble The Dish:

    Take a glass baking dish that is 2 inches high and 12 inches in length and coat it with 1/2 a tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil. Layer about two thirds of the potato slices on the bottom of the baking dish leaving about a cup or so of potato coins for later use. Next add the slices of monkfish over the top of the potatoes, arrange the fish pieces evenly.

    In a separate stainless steel bowl combine the sliced shallots, tomatoes, fennel, garlic and herbs and 1 tablespoon of the remaining 1 1/2 tablespoons of olive oil. Season the mixture with a hint of sea salt and ground black pepper and toss. Place this mixture evenly over the fish.

    Lastly arrange the remaining potato coins over the top of the dish, if some of the tomato and fennel mixture is showing that is ok. Drizzle the last bit of olive oil over the top of the potatoes and place the dish in a 375 degree oven for 20 minutes or *when the internal temperature reaches 150 degrees (fish needs to cook to an internal temperature of 145 degrees).

    Apple Strudel
    (serves 4 people)

    1/4 cup Bread Flour
    1/2 cup flour (all-purpose)
    1/2 tsp. Salt
    1/2 each Egg Yokes

    Mix together the bread flour, all purpose flour and salt in a mixing bowl using the dough hook on a mixer. Then slowly add the egg yokes, oil, and warm water on medium speed until the dough pulls away from the side of the bowl, but slightly sticks to the bottom of the bowl. Remove from the mixing bowl, cover with oil and place in a sealed container. Place in the refrigerator overnight. Remove from refrigerator and gently wipe off the excess oil from the dough. For best results, place a clean, lint free towel on the kitchen counter and gently pull the dough with your hands until the dough is paper thin. The dough should be rectangular in shape.

    Preparation Method:

    Once you have the dough stretched out, place 3 tablespoons of the toasted bread crumbs on the long end of the dough close to you, appx 3 inches wide. Mix together the sliced apples and raisins and place on top of the toasted bread crumbs. Sprinkle the cinnamon sugar on the apple and raisin mixture. Then add the remaining toasted bread crumbs on top of the apple mixture. With a pastry brush, brush the melted butter on the dough that is exposed. Next, grabbing the towel with the side where the apple mixture is, roll the dough to the other end making sure that the apple mixture inside is even. Brush the outside of the dough with more of the melted butter. Then bake in a 400 degree oven for appx 25-30 minutes or until the dough is golden brown. Let cool at room temp. for 30-45 minutes, then slice with a serrated knife into 4 equal portions.
