Monkfish (Lophius piscatorius) or angler fish is usually found on the coast of Brittany. Rather flat, this fish is recognizable by the wide and thorny head. The skin is brownish and without scale. Angler fishes live motionless, buried in the sea bed where they feed on gobies, on squids, on crabs or on dabs.
Monkfish is also one of the thinest fishes (0,79 % of lipids), it is equivalent to the sole, the hake or even the cod. Thus this fish is ideal for diet plans.
Monkfish tail contains numerous vitamins (in particular group B) and minerals (phosphor, magnesium, iodine, iron ...). All these properties make it a food of choice, as well for its flavor as for its postive impact on the body.

Monkfish tail is easy to prepare because it does not have any fish bones, only a thick spince that is very easy to remove.
However, the monkfish tail reduces in size when cooked, so as a main course, you would need at least 1kg for 2 to 3 people.

- Fried : in a friing pan with a bit of butter or olive oil
- Grilled : As a brochette with herbes, or even wrapped in bacon
