How to Make It

Step 1    

Using a sharp knife, cut the monkfish fillet on the diagonal into 1/2-inch-thick slices. Put the flour, beaten eggs and panko in 3 shallow bowls. Season the fish with salt and pepper and dust each slice on one side only with flour, tapping off the excess. Dip the floured side in the egg and then in the panko, pressing to help the crumbs adhere.

Step 2    

In a large skillet, melt 2 tablespoons of the butter in 2 tablespoons of the oil. Add half of the monkfish, breaded side down, and cook over high heat until golden, about 3 minutes. Carefully flip the fish and cook just until white throughout, 2 to 3 minutes longer. Transfer the fish to plates, breaded side up. Repeat with the remaining butter, oil and fish.

Step 3    

Sprinkle the monkfish with the parsley, capers, lemon zest and chopped egg. Serve with asparagus and lemon wedges.

Suggested Pairing

A toasty Côtes du Rhône Blanc.

Review Body: I made this last night. I wish there were some instructional on how to take off the membrane of the monkfish or some other prep. But it came out tasty. Crispy on top, softer on the bottom without the crust. I don't think I cooked it long enough however even though I followed the cooking time. I may try it again when and if my CSF provides the monkfish.
