1
Begin this red mullet recipe by putting the new potatoes in a large saucepan. Cover the potatoes with cold water and bring to the boil. Reduce the heat a little and cook gently until tender, then drain and set aside until almost ready to serve
  • 500g of new potatoes
2
Make sure all the scales and pin-bones have been removed from the red mullet. Season the fillets and lightly dust the skin side with flour. Brush with the soft butter
  • 4 red mullet fillets
  • plain flour
  • 50g of unsalted butter
  • 1 pinch of salt flakes
  • ground white pepper
3
Put a large non-stick frying pan over a moderate heat and add a little rapeseed oil
  • 50ml of rapeseed oil
4
Lay the fish in the frying pan skin-side down and press down gently using a fish spatula
5
Get a saucepan of hot water ready to reheat the cooked potatoes. Put them into the hot water for 2 minutes then drain in a colander. Return the potatoes to the saucepan and crush with a fork
6
Slice the spring onions and add them to the potatoes along with the Caesar dressing. Mix thoroughly
  • 1 bunch of spring onions
  • 4 tbsp of Caesar salad dressing
7
In a bowl, dress the baby spinach leaves with some of the rapeseed oil
  • 200g of baby spinach
  • 25ml of rapeseed oil
8
When the fish is done, season it with a little lemon juice and flaky sea salt then remove it to a tray so it doesn’t overcook
  • 1/2 lemon
  • 1 pinch of salt flakes
9
To serve, put a medium-sized ring in the middle of a serving dish, then spoon in a quarter of the crushed new potatoes. Remove the ring and place some of the dressed spinach on top

Gently place one fillet of red mullet on top and drizzle the plate with some of the remaining rapeseed oil to garnish. Repeat with the remaining ingredients and serve
