Monkfish and Spanish serrano ham goes very well together and this recipe is a prime example of how these exquisite flavours work. Easy to make "land and sea" kebabs with local vegetables, olive oil and garlic. Highly recommended for the barbeque!

Ingredients for Monkfish and Serrano Ham Kebabs

3 Large monkfish tails cut trimmed into 1" square cubes
200g Sliced serrano ham (inch square pieces, not too thick)
1 Red pepper (onion, green pepper, mushrooms optional)
3 Garlic cloves (crushed)
3 Teaspoons oregano
Olive oil
Ground black pepper
Lemon juice

How to make Monkfish and Serrano Ham Kebabs

  • Place a generous splash of olive oil into a cazuela or bowl; add a squeeze of lemon juice, the oregano and garlic.
  • Add the monkfish into the marinade and mix well, leave for 20 minutes.
  • On kebab skewers thread the pieces of serrano ham, then monkfish, then the red pepper, alternating as you go.
  • Using the above method make 8 kebabs, when complete sprinkle with a little salt and cracked black pepper.
  • Grill on the barbeque for around 10 minutes turning frequently


Always thread the sliced ham after the monkfish, on high heat the two fuse together producing a fabulous flavour combination.
