Most mullet fans agree that the only proper way to prepare the fish is frying. This recipe keeps it simple and allows the mullet to be the star of the meal.

Southern Fried Mullet Fresh Mullet fillets Salt
 Pepper
 Corn Meal
 Peanut Oil


Wash cleaned fish, which should be butterflied or filleted. Salt and pepper generously, roll in corn meal.
Fry in deep, hot peanut oil (350 degrees) for 3 to 5 minutes, turning if necessary or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork. Fish will be golden brown. Drain on absorbent paper.
Fish Fry Pointers:
Use a large, deep pan to avoid crowding fish. Turn fish once when crisp and golden. For fillets, brown skin side last. After frying, drain fish immediately on paper towels to remove fat.
