Fabienne's Leeks and Monkfish

Rated as 4.5 out of 5 Stars

"Monkfish has become my favorite fish. Its delicate flavor is complemented by the combination of leeks and carefully chosen spices. The amount of curry could be modified to your own taste. This dish could be served over rice, with mashed potatoes, or with fingerling potatoes."
