The first thing we do is to cook the head, spines and skins of the monkfish to prepare a fish stock which will be the one that brings the flavor to our monkfish fideuá recipe. I had bought a whole monkfish to make the monkfish recipe in American sauce and with its thorns I prepared a broth letting it cook with leek tips and a carrot for 35 minutes. Then I let it infuse all night in the fridge and the next day I put it in and stored it for this recipe.

For the sofrito, we fry garlic cloves and green pepper cut into small pieces directly in the paella. When they brown, we lightly mark the pieces of monkfish and then add the grated tomato. Add the noodles and lightly toast.

Next, we add the fish broth, -approximately a double quantity of broth will be necessary than the volume of the noodles, but it will depend on its thickness-. Let cook adding saffron also or the seasoning for paella and we tested in case of salt rectification.

If we see that we lack liquid we can add more broth. When the noodles are tender, it will take approximately ten minutes to turn off the heat and serve the fideuá immediately.
