Method

These kebabs will work with a different white fish if you can’t find monkfish, although do make sure that it’s firm and meaty. Cod loin or cheeks would make a good substitute. The chutney is rich from the nuts and fragrant with herbs: try it with other fish or grilled chicken, too.

1. Lightly toast the coriander and fennel seeds in a dry frying pan, then crush or grind them to a powder. Mix with the chilli powder, turmeric, salt and 1 tablespoon neutral oil.

2. Add the chunks of fish and mix well to coat. Set aside while you make the chutney.
