Angel Shark/Fish (Squatina squatina)

A form of shark, but not looking as we might traditionally expect. The Angel more resembles a cross between a monkfish (with a big wide head), and a ray (with wide fins.

Angels grow up to 2 metres in length and range between the Mediterranean and Scotland.

If found on your fishmongers slab it may be poached, baked or fried - and like all sharks doesn't have any tiresome bones. It"s popular on the Mediterranean coast of France, where it's called "Ange de mer".

If you enjoy cooking take a minute to look at ‘Simon Scrutton Cookery Classes’ on Google – and learn how to make top class bistro-style dishes. Suitable for beginners upwards.
