Heat a nonstick fry pan with a medium-high heat and add 2 tbsp of extra virgin olive oil, after 2 minutes add the monkfish fillets into the pan, cook for 3 minutes per side (the thickness of my fillets where 1/2 inch), after a total cooking time of 6 minutes remove from the pan and set aside covered with foil paper
Using the same pan with the same heat add the shrimp and cook for 1 minute per side, then remove from the pan and cover with foil paper
Again, using the same pan with the same heat add the diced onions and minced garlic, mix with the oil and make sure to scrape up anything that was left over from the monkfish and shrimp, after 2 minutes add 1/2 tsp of sweet smoked paprika and 1/2 tsp of hot smoked paprika, mix it all together, then add about 3/4 cup of canned tomato sauce, season with sea salt and freshly cracked black pepper and mix it all together until well combined, after simmering for 3 minutes lower the fire to a low heat, add the shrimp and monkfish back into the pan and heat for 2 minutes, serve directly from the pan garnished with lemon slices and freshly chopped parsley, enjoy!
