Monkfish cheeks are the ultimate delicacy for seafood connoisseurs. Sourced fresh from the icy waters off the coast of Scotland, these succulent morsels are bursting with rich, sweet flavour. The monkfish is prized for its delicate, tender flesh, and the cheeks are considered the most succulent part of the fish.
The cheeks are small, oval-shaped cuts of meat that are taken from the head of the monkfish. They have a firm, meaty texture that is perfect for grilling, pan-frying, or even roasting. Whether you're looking to add a touch of luxury to your dinner party or simply want to indulge in the finest that the sea has to offer, monkfish cheeks are sure to impress.
To bring out the full flavour of these delectable treats, we recommend serving them simply grilled with a drizzle of lemon juice and a sprinkle of sea salt. They also pair beautifully with a range of bold, aromatic herbs and spices, such as basil, parsley, and chili flakes.
For a truly indulgent dining experience, try serving the monkfish cheeks with a decadent white wine sauce or a hearty curry. Whether you're a seasoned seafood lover or new to the world of fine fish, monkfish cheeks are sure to become a new favorite. So why wait? Treat yourself to the ultimate in seafood luxury.

All raw fish must be cooked through before serving.
Your meat order is kept cool in transit because we either use an insulated expanded polystyrene box, or a recyclable tough corrugated cardboard box which is foil lined and insulated with bubble wrap. Both boxes are leak-proof and sturdy.
To keep your delivery cool, it is packed along with specially designed ice packs. Our ice packs are made with a frozen water-based gel, which keeps the meat at the correct temperature for up to 48 hours. When the ice does melt, it stays as a gel, which prevents the delivery becoming wet.
