Monkfish and prawn noodles

A dear friend of mine gave me a while ago a group of recipes from restaurants at Cordoba and I loved this one because it was easy to do and looks delicious, so I must do it.
Cordoba is a region of Spain that is popular for its olive oil, wine and food, and of course for its people; as all cities of the South, they are happy people and know how to enjoy life without too many things, after all they have the sun, a great weather, a very rich soil and the sea (not that far anyway) what else do you need?.


300 grams Noodles
½ onion
½ red pepper
½ leek
1 garlic clove
1 leaf bay
1 cayenne
12 prawns
350 grams Monkfish
Olive oil
100 ml. white wine
1500 ml. fumet (fish stock)


We will need a wide pan, the best option is a “paellera”, but any other large pan would do.

Heat oil on a large pan and sauté in it the monkfish, when is golden brown add the veggies finely chopped, a leaf of bay and cayenne, cook on low heat until the veggies are poached. Then pour the wine and let the alcohol evaporate, now add the stock, when it begins to boil, add the noodles and the prawns and cook until they are done and the liquid is almost all gone.

    1. Hello frugalfeeding, thanks for liking this post. It’s true, monkfish can be pricey, but you can use any other fish with the consistency of the monkfish, Nile perch for instance. Keep coming and will try to do some more frugal recipes 😉

  1. This looks delicious! I have never tried monkfish before…I think I need to pick it up next time I go to the store…I love anything with prawns..I bet it would be a great combo! 🙂

    1. Thanks Christina!
      Monkfish is an ugly fish but is very good, so yes try this or any other recipe with it and let me know how it went. Love your blog, by the way. The recipes are great and the pictures gorgeous.

OK, let's talk
