Method
  1. Preheat your grill to a medium heat.
  2. Mix the tikka curry powder and natural yoghurt and coat each chunk of monkfish.
  3. After soaking your wooden skewers in cold water, start to thread the monkfish and peppers onto your sticks. Any extra marinade can be brushed over the fish and peppers.
  4. Cook under the grill for roughly 8–10 minutes, turning the skewers to make sure the fish is cooked through. Remove from the grill and squeeze the lime over the kebabs.

Serve with a green salad and wholemeal pitta bread for a healthy monkfish kebab.
