  3. Season the monkfish tail liberally with salt and pepper
  4. Coat the monkfish with melted butter
  5. Roast in the pre-heated oven for 20 minutes and baste with butter at regular intervals
  6. During the last five minutes, baste with the Lobster Bisque Gravy to give it a beautiful golden shine
  7. Remove from the oven and leave to rest, allowing the monkfish to collect the juices
  8. Add the collected juices back into the Lobster Bisque Gravy, ready for serving
