As monkfish has robust flesh and a subtle taste, it can stand up to relatively strong flavours such as Parma ham and red wine.
Both red and white wines can work well, however very light whites are best avoided as they may be over-powered if the fish has been roasted or grilled. Full-bodied reds may also prove to be a bit much, even for monkfish. If you stick to these rules, the trick then is to match the wine to the other flavours in the dish.
