I was working with a pound of monkfish, so I also added a drained and rinsed can of chickpeas. Other than the time it takes to break down and slice 2 heads (and 4 cloves) of garlic, this a very easy recipe to tackle on a weeknight (and very tasty). Have crusty bread on hand for the broth!
This was my first time cooking monk fish. I found this recipe and it sounded good. I downsized from 6 to 2 servings, Exceptions were, I had a can of Rotelle tomato's, (original), and "smoked" vs "sweet" paprika. The end result was very good, (would definitely do again). Served with wild rice and asparagus. The wine was a Conundrum white - very good pairing.
It was very good - I replaced the 2 cups of water with white cooking wine
This was really good! And you better love garlic, lol! The monkfish was cooked perfectly & the sauce was great. I used organic fire-roasted crushed tomatoes. Next time, I will follow the suggestions of adding red pepper flakes. We had baked potatoes & a salad. Will definitely make again
It was good and easy. I did not change the recipe. I like the idea of adding red pepper flakes.
I used this recipe as opposed to the oil and butter as my wife is not eating dairy.
I would add some rice bed to soak the sauce.
Delish! And so easy. Served with a simple kale salad.
This was super easy and delish but added red pepper flakes to spice it up further...I knew 2 lbs of monk fish wasn't enough for my family so I added a lb of shrimp as well. It worked out very well!
Best EVER. Absolutely restaurant qualit! thank you for this recipe
This was delicious. The sliced garlic really made this dish. I was hesitant about the amount of water used, but it did cook down. I would definitely make again.
MINOUCHKA ***** I have made this several times with monkfish (called the poor man lobster) and with other fish fillets. It is easy and quick to make, and always has been a huge hit with my family and friends. Great served with rice or grits as well as pasta. IT's soooo goood! And BTW, Kim Tim for your info any fish dish with tomato makes good marriage! :)
It really isn't good. Whoever thought that tomato sauce would pair with monkfish is an idiot.
so simple to cook, yet, so delicious! My kids love it..
Great! Yum! Substituted freshly caught sea robin filet for monkfish. Made extra sauce which I added to whole grain quinoa-corn pasta, sardinian pecorino, grass fed butter, fresh herbs and a side butter lettuce mix salad from trader joes, chopped carrots and roasted Caesar dressing. Red wine and beer too. One of best meals I've ever enjoyed yet, certainly :)
OMG, this was so simple and amazing. I wished I had made rice to pair with the sauce. My teenagers were disappointed there was no extra monkfish. The sauce is phenomenal!
