Pairings | Roast monkfish
Monkfish (or lotte, as the French call it) is a meaty fish that is often roasted so pairs equally well with red wine as with white. In fact a lightly chilled red wine would generally be my preferred match, particularly if it’s wrapped in pancetta or bacon
Few people now throw up their hands in horror at the idea of matching red wine with fish. But how many realise just how often you can pair the two?
There’s a long story behind this week’s match but it’s a good one so bear with me . . .
