Grey Mullet Cooked in Lemon and Red Wine

If you can find it when in season (]une to August) Cornish grey mullet is a real delicacy. Otherwise use wild or farmed trout. Cox's apples give a distinctive flavour but another English eating apple could be substituted. Cornish instead of double cream would add a real touch of luxury.

  • 1/2 oz butter
  • 1 lb Cox's apples peeled, cored and sliced
  • 6 spring onions sliced
  • finely grated rind and juice of 1 lemon
  • 2 garlic cloves skinned and crushed
  • salt and pepper
  • 4 grey mullets each weighing about 10 oz
  • 2 lemons sliced
  • 1/2 pint dry red wine
  • 4 tbsp fresh double cream


  • To make the stuffing, melt the butter in a medium saucepan and lightly fry the apples, spring onions, lemon rind, 30 ml (2 tbsp) of the lemon juice and the garlic. Season to taste.
  • Make 3 slashes across both sides of each grey mullet and insert the lemon slices. Sprinkle the cavity of each fish with remaining lemon juice and fill with the stuffing. Put into a large ovenproof dish.
  • Pour over the red wine and bake at 180°C (350°F) mark 4 for 20 - 30 minutes, until the fish is tender.
  • Remove the fish from the dish and place on a warmed serving dish. Keep hot.
  • Pour the cooking liquid into a small saucepan, stir in the cream and reheat gently. Serve poured over the fish.
