Monkfish tail is one of the most versatile fish we have landed here in Cornwall. When filleted and skinned, one tail produces two cylindrical shaped fillets, ready to be cut into bite sized pieces or larger portions; they can also be cut into steaks, across the bone. This fish is perfect for the BBQ, posh dinner party or, just a tasty home cooked supper, having a fine flavour. Top chefs regard this fish as "the best"!

Monkfish is landed in Cornish ports as trimmed tails as over two thirds of the fish is head. Tails vary in size from 150grams to over 6 kilos.
