Each large monkfish produces two spectacular pieces of white meat from their cheeks. We take any skin and membrane off the monkfish cheeks to make them as ready to cook as possible. Each pack is 200g which can contain between three and six cheeks depending on the size. Just a personal preference, I like dusting them in tandoori spices and frying them with onions and garlic.
