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 were 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.
