Preheat oven to 220°C/425°F/gas 7. Pat grated potato with kitchen paper to remove excess moisture. Microwave for 5 mins with the butter in a covered bowl.
Add the shredded leek and garlic and cook for a further 3 mins. Season well and bind together with the egg. Chill until ready to cook.
Meanwhile prepare the kebabs. Cut the monkfish into large cubes and thread onto the lemon grass skewers along with the bay leaf and red pepper. Place in a container and drizzle with the lemon juice and olive oil. Cover and chill until ready to cook.
To cook rosti shape into 8 x 8cm rounds using a pastry cutter and shallow fry over a very gentle heat for 10 mins on each side until crisp and golden, turning carefully with a fish slice.
Grill marinated kebabs for 6-8 mins under a hot grill, turning half way through cooking.
Serve kebabs on top of the rosti along with a mixed leaf salad.
