You'll never consider a takeaway kebab again- rustle up this fresh and healthy spin on a greasy classic

This tabbouleh tastes fresh and healthy, and leaving it to sit means that all the flavours develop nicely. If you don’t have skewers, don’t worry, just grill the monkfish chunks without spearing them, and cook for a little less time.

Serves 1

Make the tabbouleh ahead of time



50g dried bulgur wheat

250g monkfish, trimmed and chopped into 2–3cm chunks

Drizzle of olive oil

Salt and pepper

3 tbsp chopped parsley

2 tbsp chopped mint

2 tbsp chopped coriander

1 ripe tomato, roughly chopped

2 roasted red peppers from a jar, roughly sliced

2 spring onions, finely sliced

2 lemons

Pitta bread, to serve


Preheat your grill to maximum and bring a saucepan of water to the boil.

As soon as the water has boiled, dump in the bulgur wheat and cook according to the packet instructions (about 8 minutes) before draining through a fine sieve and rinsing under cold running water.

Slide the monkfish onto one massive skewer or two smaller ones. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper.

Grill the monkfish for 8–9 minutes, rotating a couple of times while cooking.

Tip the drained bulgur wheat into a bowl and add the chopped herbs, the tomato (scraping in all the tomato juice too), red pepper, spring onions, the juice of a lemon and a generous pinch of salt and pepper. Mix the ingredients together.

Serve up the tabbouleh with the cooked monkfish skewers on top, a final spritz of lemon juice, some grated lemon zest and pitta bread on the side.

Hello every body my name is Synder Anderson I just want to share my experience with the world on how Lord Alika help me, I got my love back and saved my marriage… I was married for 3 years with 1 kid and we lived happily until things started getting ugly and we had fights and argued almost e very time… it got worse at a point that he filed for divorce I tried my best to make him change his mind & stay with me because I love him so much and don’t want to lose him but everything just didn’t work out… he moved out of the house because it was a rented apartment and still went ahead to file for divorce… I pleaded and tried everything but still nothing worked. The breakthrough came when someone introduced me to this wonderful, great spell caster who eventually helped me out… I have never been a fan of things like this but just decided to try reluctantly because I was desperate and left with no choice… He did special prayers and used his power… Within 4 days my husband called me and he said he was sorry for all the emotional pains he had cost me, moved back to the house and we continue to live happily and our kid is happy too and we are expecting our second child… and my Husband also got a new job and our lives became much better web:http://lordalikaspelltemp8.wix.com/http I have introduced him to a lot of couples with problems across the world and they have had good news..contact him on lordalikaspelltemple@yahoo.co.uk or +13217666393. web:http://lordalikaspelltemp8.wix.com/http
