This may be a sign of middle age, or at least maturity: my idea of a great meal for a very special occasion is not some meaty dish, but fish. To me more precise, in this instance, monkfish. Also known as fishing-frog, frog-fish or devil-fish, because it is that ugly when in the ocean. Alive, it is like a sea monster really. But as food, it is oh so good! So like last year, this is monkfish I had to celebrate my birthday, in the same local restaurant, the very same recipe in fact, with pine nuts, capers and olives. Olives and capers, and a fish that nearly has no bones to speak of, this dish was made for me. I am really developing a taste for monkfish. Even though I eat it very rarely.
