Monkfish With Spinach And Goat’s Cheese

Everytime I hear of someone that was attacked by a shark, I think “didn’t they hear the music?”

Ha! I love that line.

I love the movie Jaws.

Jaws ruined my love of swimming in the ocean. Forever.

My children are not allowed to watch Jaws until they leave for college. I’m not kidding. :)

I know I am denying them of seeing one of the best movies ever made, but I can’t help but inflict this particular neurosis of mine on them.

Psycho mother. I know. Just one of those (sort of) Irrational Fears like I wrote about here.

I thought this was pretty funny.

This might be one of the stupidest things I have ever seen, but I loved it. “Watching the game, havin’ a Bud”

You will want to sink your jaws into this dreamy monkfish dinner. The combination of melting goat cheese and spinach is so good. The monkfish is almost like lobster in texture. Really good with the curry chutney.

Monkfish With Spinach And Goat’s Cheese


150g spinach
110g goat’s cheese
1 Tbs pine nuts
2 x 450g monkfish tails
8 slices dry cured ham
2 tsp Thai curry paste
2 Tbs mango chutney


1. Cook spinach for a few minutes, in a small amount of water, just until wilted. Remove from heat, drain and chop.

2. Put spinach in a bowl with goat’s cheese and pine nuts. Mix together and season with salt and pepper.

3. Place one monkfish into a greased roasting pan. Spread the spinach filling down the center. Lay the second monkfish tail on top. Lay strips of ham over the top of the monkfish.

4. Bake at 180℃/350℉ for 25 minutes or until the fish is cooked through.

5. Place the curry paste and chutney in a small saucepan. Stir well and heat through, tipping in any pan juice.

6. Slice the monkfish and serve with the chutney sauce

Serves 4

This completely ridiculous “song” was all the rage when it came out in 1975. You couldn’t turn on the radio without hearing it. I admit to loving it, and the concept, myself. I cannot tell you how many little audio clips I recorded on cassette using snippets of songs to be just like this.
