Red Mullet Fillets
Red mullet is one of the finest fish but specimens large enough to fillet are pretty rare, so - sorry - we are often out of stock. Naturally, this is always cold water red mullet. The Fish Society don’t use that similar-looking but not-quite-right tropical red mullet. You may want two fillets per person as they are quite small fillets. The Fish Society source their red mullet from the day boats of Cornwall either via Plymouth fish market or wholesalers who know the quality they're after. Whilst red mullet is technically a 'white-fish' it's got a stronger flavour than other white fish and higher oil content. The Fish Society buy extremely fresh whole red mullet, scale them, fillet them and hand pin bone them making sure each fillet is prepared to a high standard.
