Monkfish tail is one of the most versatile fish we have landed here in Cornwall. When skinned (our standard preparation), one tail is around one portion, dependant on appetite or dish but this can be up to five smaller tails to make up the portion if that was landed on the mornings market. Our standard preparation for these tails are skin and trim them ready for cooking whole. 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" and, being smaller tails, they are very flexible and great value too. These tails can only be supplied with the bone in.
