Start this red mullet recipe by working on the aubergine purée. Preheat the oven to 220°C/Gas mark 7. Prick the aubergines several times with a fork and bake until the flesh is soft and the skins are blackened, about 30 minutes. Allow the aubergines to cool then peel them. Put the flesh in a colander, weigh it down with a plate and leave for 1 hour to drain
  • 3 aubergines
2
Take 500g of the aubergine flesh and put it in a food processor with the garlic, lemon juice, cumin and tahini. Purée the mixture, slowly adding the olive oil, then taste and adjust the seasoning
  • 1 tbsp of tahini
  • 3 garlic cloves
  • 1/4 lemon
  • 1/2 tsp ground cumin
  • 100ml of extra virgin olive oil
  • salt
  • pepper
3
To make the chilli and garlic oil, finely chop the garlic and put it in a saucepan with the anchovy, chilli flakes and sunflower oil. Heat, stirring occasionally, until the anchovy melts, then remove the pan from the heat. Add the olive oil and set aside to cool
  • 3 garlic cloves
  • 2 anchovy fillets
  • 1/2 tbsp of chilli flakes
  • 2 tbsp of sunflower oil
  • 75ml of extra virgin olive oil
4
To cook the fish, heat the grill to maximum. Fillet the fish then season the fillets with salt and pepper. Place them skin-side up on a lightly oiled baking tray or grill-pan and grill on one side only until the fish is just cooked – about 4-6 minutes
  • 4 red mullet
  • extra virgin olive oil
  • salt
  • pepper
5
To plate, heat the aubergine purée and place a spoonful on each serving plate. Mix some chopped parsley into the chilli and garlic oil and pour a little around the aubergine purée. Sit the cooked fish on top and serve
  • 1 tbsp of parsley
