Baked Monkfish with Lime and Butter

Baked Monkfish with Lime and Butter

Monkfish, dubbed the "poor man's lobster" because it has a similar taste and consistency to lobster, bakes up great with a simple butter and lime sauce. Serving it with lime slices makes it extra pretty for your presentation.


  • 1 large monkfish filet, about 12-14 ounces, cut in half
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 4 tablespoons lime juice
  • lime zest and lime slices
  • 1 avocado, peeled, pitted and sliced
  • olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Cooking Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  2. Lightly oil a large baking dish and place monkfish filets over it.
  3. Season with salt and pepper. A bit of seasoned salt works here as well.
  4. Bake about 20 minutes, or until fish is white and flakey. You'll need about 10 minutes cooking time per inch of thickness.
  5. Transfer filets to serving dishes.
  6. Top each with 1 tablespoon butter and 2 tablespoons lime juice.
  7. Sprinkle with lime zest and serve with avocado on the side.

NOTE: We also served ours with some butter and lime infused spinach.
