Ingredients You'll Need

1 large clove Garlic
Grated rind of ½ lemon
Juice of 1 lemon
Salt and pepper
1 cup dry white wine
1 1/4 lbs. monkfish or other solid white fish
Olive Oil for frying
2 tbsp capers
Lemon slices – Optional Garnich


Lightly Fry Fish in Olive Oil: In a large frying pan with a heavy bottom, fry fish in approximately ¼ inch olive oil, browning on both sides.

Make Lemon Sauce: While the fish is frying, make the lemon sauce. Grate the lemon rind onto a plate. Juice the lemon. Set both aside.

Peel and crush garlic in a mortar and pestle and add the lemon rind, salt and pepper and mix, making a paste. Add lemon juice and stir.

Add Lemon Sauce to Pan: Pour the lemon sauce and wine into the frying pan with the fish. Turn down fish and allow to simmer on low until the sauce is reduced a bit.

Add Capers and Serve: Add capers to the pan and stir. Turn off heat. Remove fish from pan and place on plates. Spoon sauce over the fish and serve with rice or fried potatoes.
