another fresh seafood idea

Salt the mullet roes on both sides, set aside.

Pre-heat about ⅛” of oil in an electric skillet to 350° F.

Place seafood breading mix in a shallow dish. Dredge both sides of the fish with the breading mix and shake off excess. Place the fish, flesh sides down, in the skillet and fry for about 4 minutes. Flip over and fry for 4 to 6 minutes or until done. Remove fish and place on a baking sheet lined with paper towels.

If needed, add more oil to the skillet and bring oil back up to 350° F. Place the salted roes in the skillet and fry for 4 to 6 minutes. Flip over and fry for 4 to 6 minutes or until done. Remove roes and place them on a baking sheet lined with paper towels. Serve with the fish.

Note: Larger mullet roes will require a longer cooking time.
