One of my old catering party favourites
But when you multiply the sauce use less garlic!!!
100 to 150g monkfish per person
(instead of monkfish other firm fish can be used)
Ingredients sauce:
2 pieces of sliced ​​white bread
1 1/2 dl olive oil
3 garlic cloves
3 long “plum” tomatoes (pomodori), peeled and seeded
12 almonds, browned
1 glass of Muscato or white wine is okay
1 bell pepper, peeled and pureed
pinch of paprika
pinch of hot chilli pepper or oil
1 tbsp vinegar
salt and pepper
Preparation:
1 Clean the fish and cut into pieces (2 to 3 per person)
2 Fry the bread slices in 1 dl of the oil and puree in food¬proces¬sor
3 Add the remaining ingredients and puree until you have a smooth mixture
4 Pour a little olive oil in a low pan and place the pieces of fish in this
5. Let the oil come slowly up to temperature
6 Spoon the sauce in a layer over the fish, shaking the pan so the sauce mixes with the oil in the pan, and becomes more liquid
7 Let the fish become cooked in the sauce, over a very low heat.
