When cooking fish, you don't have to stick to soft herbs like tarragon or dill – gutsy, woody herbs like oregano, thyme or rosemary are great with fish like red mullet. In the UK, red mullet are hard to get hold of at the moment. Make sure your fish is from a sustainable source, and if you can't find sustainable red mullet, go for small red snapper instead.

BUYING SUSTAINABLY SOURCED FISH
Buying sustainably sourced fish means buying fish that has been caught without endangering the levels of fish stocks and with the protection of the environment in mind. Wild fish caught in areas where stocks are plentiful are sustainably sourced, as are farmed fish that are reared on farms proven to cause no harm to surrounding seas and shores.
When buying either wild or farmed fish, ask whether it is sustainably sourced. If you're unable to obtain this information, don't be afraid to shop elsewhere – only by shopping sustainably can we be sure that the fantastic selection of fish we enjoy today will be around for future generations.
