Monkfish Kebabs with Coriander, Mint and Walnut Chutney

25 Minutes | easy | Serves 4

These kebabs will work with a different white fish if you can’t find monkfish, although do make sure that it’s firm and meaty. Cod loin or cheeks would make a good substitute. The chutney is rich from the nuts and fragrant with herbs: try it with other fish or grilled chicken, too.


  • 600g monkfish or other firm white, chunky fish (such as cod or cod cheeks), cut into large chunks
  • ½ teaspoon ground turmeric
  • 1 teaspoon coriander seeds
  • 1 teaspoon fennel seeds
  • 1 teaspoon chilli powder
  • 1 tablespoon neutral oil (such as vegetable or groundnut)
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 75g coriander
  • 30g mint
  • 100g walnuts
  • 1 green chilli
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • Large pinch salt
  • Pinch sugar
  • To serve: Flatbreads or other wraps, or rice Shredded white cabbage, cucumber or salad leaves



Lightly toast the coriander
