Bacon Wrapped Monkfish ! Roy’s Favorite

Mmmmm bacon wrapped Monkfish!

Today I’d like to share with you the dish one of my close friends calls his all-time favorite.

I decided to hold a Sea Feast at my place this week. Not that any reason is required, but a warm summer evening, my sister being in town and also, I may have forgotten Roy’s birthday the week before, but I just forgot a little bit!

Now, before we get to the dish at hand, a word about bacon. Bacon is a food group!

Well, not really from a nutritional standpoint (I realize it’s mostly fat, very little protein and some salts), but from a culinary standpoint – IT MAKES EVERYTHING TASTE BETTER!

Beautiful, flavorful fat/oil, smokiness, salt and that crispy texture….can I make it any more clear?
