An absolutely wonderful meal - wholesome and with the fennel delcately flavoured. The kind of meal one would expect on the menu of a michelin starred restaurant. Gorgeous!

Excellent recipe. I suggest greasing the dish with butter and roasting the fish lightly in a pan before placing it on the potatoes.

A simple and elegant meal. With accompanying salad and fresh bread it is complete. And so easy to prepare.

I sliced potatoes and cooked them a little longer before adding the monkfish and some garlic and chilli with fried onions. Beautiful, easy recipe to follow and add your own flavours. Thank you very much for making monkfish an easy dish to cook
