Because of its firm, meaty texture monkfish is a suitable choice to make these pescatarian kebabs. The fish is marinated in a lime mixture to infuse extra flavour before grilling. Serve this dish with any refreshing side dish or salad, or a large coleslaw for a healthy and light lunch.

Can I prepare monkfish kebabs in advance?

Kebabs can be prepared in advance, but we suggest not to keep them for more than one day in the fridge and always keep them covered to avoid them drying out.
