Red Mullet is a beautiful fish. Bright red scales cover its body and it has a plump, rounded body. Not only is its skin very pretty, it’s also fantastically flavoursome with a high fat content. When cooked, it has a wonderful crunch on it – like fish crackling! Red mullet can be roasted whole on the bone for a fabulous flavour or pan fried in fillets quickly as to retain its marvellous moisture. Like lots of fish, its fab on the barbecue, or cooked en papilotte with punchy flavours like chilli and garlic. Because it’s a fatty fish with a good flavour – much stronger than its other white fish counterparts – it can stand up to more robust seasonings, so go wild.
Fresh fish is best eaten straight away, or within 3 days. Store in your refrigerator and pack with ice if possible. To freeze; place the fish straight in the freezer upon delivery and aim to consume within 3 months. TIP: Write the date on the packaging before freezing. Do not re-freeze your fish after defrosting.
