Mullet is a great fish to cook, the red mullet in particular looks stunning and works in perfect harmony with the classic flavours of the Mediterranean; basil, garlic, lemon and olive oil. It offers both visual and taste appeal to a fish soup or stew and is wonderful stuffed with Provencal herbs and baked with olive oil and rock salt.
Cooked simply they are all the better for it, use olive oil based dressings such as pesto or tapenade as opposed to a heavy cream sauce. Try other flavours such as; saffron, orange, tomato, rosemary, olives, beans, chorizo sausage, fennel. They are also excellent with a bowl of cous cous and some chopped preserved lemon and mint.
