Ingredients

  • 2 pounds monkfish tail, cut in 1-inch chunks
  • Salt and pepper
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1/2 stalk celery plus 6 stalks celery, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1/2 small onion, cut in pieces, plus 3 medium onions, sliced
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil, as needed for sauteing vegetables
  • 2 medium green peppers, seeded and cut into 1-inch pieces
