  1. I grilled pranws, tomato, zucchini and red onions on rosemary skewers years ago. it was so delicious i have not the slightest idea why i haven’t done it again since?! Reading this brought that memory back and my mouth rivals a waterfall! this loook delicious and i so wish monkfish was readily available in my part of the world. I’ll search and try this again! Thanks for the tip!!!
