People have a lot to say about Mullet – in Australia it is an inexpensive fish because people consider it too difficult to eat because of the amount of bones that the fish has. Those that are connoisseurs of seafood know better, they know that the time spent gently flaking a well cooked mullet is well worth it to get the pleasures of the delicate flavour and texture, especially when seasoned and cooked well!
The traditional egyptian way of cooking mullet is by barbecuing it, after having coated it in Raw Natural Bran. The Bran protects the fish while it is cooking so that the result is a succulent, fully flavoured sensational fish.
I hope you enjoy this recipe.
