Our first meal from the Plastic Free July Movement was Garlic and Parsley Monkfish with Mashed Potatoes and Boiled Broccoli.
Ingredients (meal for 2):
2 Fillets of Monkfish
1 Large head of Broccoli
800 g Loose Potatoes
3 tablespoons of butter/olive oil
3 teaspoons of chopped garlic
A few sprigs of flat leaf parsley, leaves only
Salt and Pepper to taste
Dash of oat milk
Preheat the oven to 220°C/Fan 200°C/Gas 7. Unwrap the monkfish fillets and pat them dry with kitchen paper. Gently rub a little salt and pepper into the monkfish.
Place the fish fillets in an ovenproof baking tray and pour the butter-garlic-parsley mixture on them. Cook it in the oven for around 15 mins, or until the fish is opaque and flakes easily when pressed with a fork.
Prepare the potatoes by washing and dicing them. Fill a saucepan with water and add the potatoes. Cook until the potatoes are soft. Add 1 tablespoon of butter/oil, salt and pepper to taste and a dash of oat milk. Mash these together and check for salt.
Wash you broccoli and cut them into small florets. Place it in a saucepan with water and boil it for around 10 mins.
Easy and delicious!
