Grey mullet is an inexpensive fish which grills and bakes well, and is particularly successful when spiced. I always find this way of cooking very useful when time is short but if possible start early in the day so that the spices permeate the flesh. Ask the fishmonger to gut the fish through the belly, leaving the head on, and to scrape off the scales, or do it yourself (page 118).
