The monkfish, also called fishing-frog or sea-devil, lives in 20-1000 meters (60-3300 ft) and mostly in the mediterranian sea and the atlantic. With his strong, white flesh and almost no bones it is perfect for grilling on the Otto Grill. In combination with the chili, bacon, garlic and pecan nuts seasoned brussle sprouts, this dish is light but still strong in flavor. Turn on your Otto Grill and give it a try!



For the brussle sprouts

Rinse the brussle sprouts and if necessary take off the outer, decolored leaves. Bring a big pot of water to a boil and lightly salt it. Blanch the brussle sprouts for 5 min and right away cool them in ice water. Halve every head of the sprouts and place in a bowl. Peel the garlic, finely chop it and give it to the sprouts. Cut the chili in half, deseed, finely chop and mix with the sprouts. Juice one lime, take the same amount of olive oil and season the brussle sprouts mix. Add some salt and put aside for later.


For the Bacon

Heat the Otto Grill on lowest level for three mins. Place bacon on the cast iron grill grate and roast the bacon for 3-4 minutes on Meat-O-Meter level 5 until it has the desired color.
