Mullet is a fish that has white, soft flesh. This tasty fish is healthy and rich in phosphorus as any other fish, though. It also contains proteins and the B vitamins. Poached or baked mullet is beneficial to seniors, especially to those suffering from atherosclerosis.
Mullet inhibits coastal waters of warm seas like the Mediterranean and the Black Sea. This fish can often be found in freshwater lagoons. It is silvery on the belly and dark on the back.
The most valuable mullet has two yellow spots on both sides of the head between gills and eyes. Mullet is good for Christmas dinner as it has a few bones. Baked mullet is particularly delicious and flavorous as parsley and garlic give a fine taste and delicate aroma to the flesh.
