Crispy red mullet – Delicacy of the Black Sea coast
There is nothing better than a crispy, salty and perfectly cooked red mullet. Known colloquially as “barabuli” and officially as Mullus barbatus, red mullet is a species of small fish that can be found near the Black Sea coast. Thus, it’s hardly a surprise that fried crispy red mullet is a very popular dish in Georgia, especially in the coastal areas. You can taste this incredibly delicious fish in the restaurants of western Georgia or you can use this extremely
easy recipe to make some yourself.

Ingredients:


600 grams of fresh red mullet
1 / 2 cup of lemon juice
2 tbsp of flour
Sunflower oil
Salt and pepper to taste

Preparation:

Wash, clean and gut the fish. Rinse the fish once again afterwards. Sprinkle the ready fish with salt and pepper and pour lemon juice on it. Gently stir with bare hands and leave it in lemon juice for 20 minutes. Then coat the fish in flour and place it onto a preheated oily pan. Fry at a high temperature on both sides for 2-3 minutes until golden brown. After that, place the fried fish on a towel to remove excess oil and then it’s ready to serve. Garnish with fresh salad , lettuce or tkemali (Georgian sour plum sauce). The dish goes well with potato puree, boiled or fried potatoes as well as with tomato and cucumber salad.
