Grey Mullet, Fresh Fish

Grey Mullet, Fresh Fish


Grey mullet is abundant in the waters around Cornwall, and it’s cheap and underappreciated. It has a distinctive, strong flavour that is quite earthy and can often be substituted for sea bass in recipes. Mullets can be cooked whole, stuffed with lots of delicious herbs and lemon slices and baked in the oven, or cut into fillets and grilled or pan-fried.

SKU: 0069 Category:

Grey or silver mullet has a distinct, slightly nutty flavour that comes from its coastal habitat, making it a tasty and cost-effective alternative to sea bass. The flesh of a mullet is bright pink, with some darker meat and a lean, firm texture. Because of its stronger flavour, it goes well with more robust flavours.

One whole fish (approximately between 1 - 2KG) choose between oven ready whole fish or fish fillets  – the perfect size to serve from one up to four people.

Fish Preparation Guide

Fresh Fish Filleted:
Fillets are the most commonly used cut. The fish is taken off the bone to create a fillet which is then pin-boned. Fillets cut from larger fish can subsequently be cut into portions also known as Supremes.

Types of Fish: Cod Brill, Dabs, Dover sole, Gurnards, Herring, Lemon Sole, Megrim Sole, Monkfish, Plaice, Pollock, Rainbow, Trout, Salmon, Sardines, Sea Bass and Whiting

Note: While we take great care to remove all bones, we cannot guarantee that they are all gone.

Whole Oven Ready Fish:
Hand prepared in house fish is gutted and scaled, ready for cooking in the oven, BBQ or pan. Fish stays super juicy when cooked on the bone.

Cooking & Storage

To protect the fish, mullet is traditionally grilled or pan-fried whole or in fillets, skin on. Mullet cooks quickly, so be careful not to overcook it or it will dry out. It's also great for steaming and poaching when there's a lot of liquid involved. Grey mullet can be used in place of sea bass in almost any recipe.

It's best to eat it right away. Refrigerate between 0°C and 5°C and consume within 2-3 days. If you won't be able to eat it within three days, freeze it on the day of delivery and eat it within three months. Refrigerate overnight to defrost. Do not refreeze.
