Fishy tales

Food and Travel (UK) - - In Season -

If the stripe on the body of the fish is unbroken, it’s a sign of fresh­ness.

In an an­cient Ro­man mar­ket, one red mul­let once sold for the price of nine bulls.

Despite the name, the red mul­let is not closely re­lated to the grey mul­let.

World­wide, there are 55 species in the Mugili­dae fam­ily, to which the mul­let be­longs.

The male fish also use their bar­bels to at­tract a fe­male.

The thick scales should be care­fully re­moved be­fore cook­ing as the skin is del­i­cate and can eas­ily tear.
