  1. Preheat the oven to 190°C/375°F/ gas mark 5.
  2. Heat a large ovenproof pan over a high heat. Add the olive oil, then carefully add the monkfish, chorizo and garlic. Cook for 3 to 4 minutes per side, then add 50g of butter to the pan. Transfer the pan to the oven for 8 to 10 minutes.
  3. In the meantime, preheat another pan until it’s smoking hot. Add the mussels and pour in the white wine. Cover with a tight-fitting lid and cook for 2 to 3 minutes, until the mussels are open. Discard any unopened mussels. Use a slotted spoon to remove the mussels from the liquid and reserve 100ml of the mussel stock.
  4. Remove the monkfish from the oven and place it on a cutting board. Cover with tin foil to keep it warm.
  5. Add the mussel stock and cream to the pan and simmer over a medium heat. Remove from the heat and add the remaining butter, stirring until fully smooth. Add the mussels back to the sauce and serve with the monkfish and chorizo in shallow bowls.
  6. Season with salt and pepper and some lemon juice, if desired. Serve with mashed or boiled potatoes.
