Ingredients

4 little red mullets (goat fish) (about 5 ounces or 150 grams each)

4 baby carrots

4 radishes

1 medium fennel bulb

About 2 ounces (50 grams) blanched green beans

2 spring onions

For the dressing:

2 tablespoons lemon juice

6 tablespoons olive oil

Salt and freshly ground black pepper

1 recipe Sauce Romesco, recipe follows

Sauce Romesco:

4 tomatoes

3 cloves garlic

Olive oil

2 anchovies, optional

1 roasted red sweet bell pepper, jarred, optional

2 ounces (50 grams) nuts (almonds, hazelnuts, pine nuts)

2 tablespoons chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley

1 teaspoon red wine vinegar

Directions

  1. With a small knife, fillet the mullets from the back without breaking the belly. Remove all the bones and keep on the side. Peel and wash the carrots, wash the other vegetables carefully and shred them into slices using a mandolin. Season the shredded vegetables with the dressing and stuff them inside the mullets. Gently cook the open mullets under the grill. Sprinkle with Sauce Romesco and serve.
