Grey mullet is a common fish found all over the world.
But there’s nothing common about its uniquely earthy, almost nutty flavour, or the traditional use of its highly prized roe for that matter.
When salted, pressed and dried, the roe sac of the grey mullet is known as bottarga, a delicacy the world over that dates back to ancient times.
But perhaps a more well-known use of its roe is as a key ingredient of the classic Greek mezze dish taramasalata.
How to Cook
We think grey mullet can be delicious. However, its earthiness can be off-putting to some.
This can be reduced by adding punchy and lightly acidic sauces, dressings and marinades that feature lemon, white wine vinegar, capers and garlic.
What to Drink
Grey mullet is a great choice for anyone who prefers a full-bodied white or rosé.
While fish with a more delicate flavour would fail to stand up to wines such as Gewürztraminer, Rioja Rosé or a Sancerre Rosé, grey mullet’s earthiness allows it to hold its own.
