method

1. Put the red mullet fillets in a large casserole. Pour over the wine and add the shallots, garlic, herbs, lemon rind and juice, nutmeg and anchovies. Season. Cover and bake in a preheated oven at 180°C/350°F/Gas Mark 4 for 35 minutes.

2. Transfer the mullet to a warm dish. Set aside and keep warm.

3. Pour the cooking liquid into a pan and bring to the boil. Simmer for 25 minutes, until reduced by half. Mix the cream and cornflour (cornstarch) and stir into the sauce to thicken.

4. Meanwhile, bring a pan of lightly salted water to the boil. Add the vermicelli and oil and cook for 8 - 10 minutes, until tender but still firm to the bite. Drain the pasta and transfer to a warm serving dish.

5. Arrange the red mullet fillets on top of the vermicelli and pour over the sauce. Garnish with a fresh mint sprig, slices of lemon and strips of lemon rind and serve immediately.
