Nutrition facts: Calories 650 per serving.
Ingredients (U.S. measurements):
We must start to clean the fish removing all the scales with a small knife but do not use too much energy because the mullets have delicate skin and you could damage the fish.
Once washed and cleaned under running cold water , the fish is ready for cooking.
Consider you need at least 4 small fishes for each person .
Take a pan ( click here to order on Amazon ) , add olive oil and start to heat it over a medium heat.
Add chopped garlic and celery when the olive starts to warm .
Then add a bit of parsley but be carefull no to burn the garlic too much.
Stir everything gently for 3/4 minutes and then add chopped red tomatoes .
Stir again and finally add the fish .
Add a bit of water if you see the sauce is reducing very fast.
You need that sauce to cook the fish.
Once the fish is in the pan add salt and a bit of pepper .
Remember the sauce must cover the mullets while cooking for about 15 minutes .
Keep always an eye on your pan and if you see the sauce is reducing too fast add a glass of water
Do not use wine !!
Once the fish is perfectly cooked put it on a dish and cover everything with the remaining chopped parsley and sauce from the pan
And now you are ready to eat!
