Southern Fried Mullet Recipe | The Mullet Festival

Fresh Mullet fillets
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.
