Brush red mullet with olive oil and sprinkle with dried herbs.

Cook red mullet on lightly oiled grill over medium-high heat for 8 minutes on each side. Turn fish only once and avoid handling too much. Serve fish with lemon wedges and with Meaux Mustard Butter.

Meaux Mustard Butter:

In saucepan, melt butter with shallots over medium heat. Stir in remaining ingredients and season to taste with salt and pepper. Transfer in small bowls. Serve mustard butter with fish and seafood.


A double-grill with handle can also be used to cook fish.
