  • Preparation

    Skewers

    Make cubes of the monkfish meat. Cut the bacon into thick rectables. Place both into a bowl, add the fresh thym leaves as well as a fair amount of olive oil. Season with salt and pepper and mix well.

    Sotre it it the fridge, ideally for an hour.

    Eggplant

    Slice the eggplant into rounds, 5 to 7 mm thick, So they will hold together on the BBQ.

    Rice

    Toast the sesame seeds in the oven for 4 to 6 minutes, or in a dry frying pan over medium heat until it colours a bit. Peel and slice the onion, peel and chop the garlic finely. Grate the ginger, zest and juice the lemon. Remove the coriander leaves then chop them coarsely.

  • Skewers

    Skewer the monfish and bacon, alternating between the two, on metal skewers.

    Plce the skewers on the BBQ and cook until nicely coloured, then transfer them to the upper grill to finish them.

  • Eggplant

    Drizzle oil on the eggplants, then season them with salt and pepper.

    Place them on the grill, turning them at the halfway point to get nice sear marks, the qooking time should be quite quick.

  • First, rinse the rice with cold water until the water flows clear.

    Bring the chicken broth to boil and infuse it with the saffran and bay leaf for a few minutes.
    In another saucepan, add the butter with the onions. Sweat them until they are translucent.
    Add garlic and ginger. Cook 10 seconds.
    Add the rice and fry for 1 min in the onion mixture, then add all of the chicken stock.

    When the rice boils, turn the heat down to simmer and cook for 10 minutes.
    Then take the rice off heat and put on a lid. Let stand 10 to 15 minutes (it is at this stage that the rice will absorb the rest of the liquid and have its very particular texture).

    Finally add the lemon zest, lemon juice and the roasted sesame, then mix.
    Season with salt and pepper. Serve immediately.

  • Plating and finishing touches

    Using a cookie cutter, make a nice compact cylinder of the basmati rice in the center of your plate, rest the skewers on top, and add the eggplant on the sides. Sprinkle with fresh coriander for garnish.
