Monkfish Curry

We have got Paul to thank for this delicious recipe! It is super quick and super tasty!

Monkfish is absolutely a slimmers friend – super low in calories but so meaty and juicy, you feel like you’re having a proper chunk of meat.

This recipe has calories just for the curry itself, so make sure you add any accompaniments like rice or naan breads.
