Roast Monkfish Tail, Sweet Red Peppers, Cashew Nuts and Pandy Pattie

Irish and Eastern tastes combine.


  • 2 medium sized monkfish tails (approx 250g each)
  • 1 tblsp olive oil
  • 2 red peppers (trimmed)
  • 50 g cashew nuts
  • 25 ml vinegar
  • 50 g brown sugar
  • for the pandy:
  • 600 g rooster potatoes (peeled and boiled)
  • 50 g butter
  • 1 onion (peeled and chopped)
  • salt and pepper


  1. Preheat oven to 180ºC / Gas 4.
  2. Roughly mash the boiled potatoes. Beat in the butter and chopped onion and place some mash into a round, metal ring. Dust the potato with flour and pan-fry for a few minutes on each side until golden brown.
  3. Cut the monkfish tails in half and season with salt and pepper. Heat a little oil in an ovenproof pan and sear the fish in it for 2-3 minutes on each side and transfer the pan to the preheated oven and roast for another 8 minutes.
  4. Roast the peppers over an open flame until the skins have burnt. Peel off the blackened skin and slice the peppers lengthways. Put the peppers in a saucepan with the vinegar, sugar and cashew nuts and cook for a few minutes.
  5. To serve, place the pandy on the plate and arrange the fish on top. Spoon some of the pepper and cashew nut sauce on the plate.
