Delightful Red mullet marinated in white wine
Preparation time less than 30 mins
Cooking time approx 30 mins to 1 hour
medium sized red mullet
1 small onion, finely chopped
180ml/6fl oz white wine
1 tbsp wine vinegar
lemon or orange
1. Put two leaves of fresh mint and a small piece of garlic inside each red mullet. Roll them in flour and fry them
gently in oil; drain them and arrange them on a long dish.
2. Prepare the following sauce. In a little oil saute a small onion finely chopped; let it melt but not turn brown, then
pour in about 180ml/6fl oz of white wine and 1 tbsp of wine vinegar. Simmer the sauce for 10-15 minutes, until it has
reduced by one third.
3. When it has cooled, pour it over the red mullets. Serve them cold, garnished with a little parsley and slices of lemon
or orange. Instead of frying the mullets, they can be scored across twice on each side and grilled, and the sauce then
poured over them. They are great, eaten hot cooked this way.
