AIX Rosé OFYR Red Mullet prep


preparation of the red mullet

Scale the red mullet, remove the head, open the belly, and carefully remove the central spine. Rinse it thoroughly with fresh water, lightly season with salt, and allow it to rest in the refrigerator for 30 minutes. Afterward, use bone removal pliers to eliminate any small bones.

Clean the fig leaves, pat them dry with absorbent paper, and brush them with oil.

Lay the red mullet, skin side down, on the fig leaf.

preparation of the vegetables

Cut the strawberries and olives into small pieces, then combine them, and season with green olive oil.

Quarter the tomatoes and remove the core. Dice the flesh using a brunoise cut (a very fine dice, 3mm) and set it aside.

In a saucepan, cook the tomato cores in olive oil and cover them with water. Season with salt and pepper, and add a sprig of rosemary. Once they are cooked, blend the mixture and strain it. Thin the cooking juice with olive oil to achieve a thick texture, season to taste, and add lemon juice according to your preference.

Quarter the figs and set them aside.

Drizzle a dash of tomato juice over the dish and add 2 pieces of fig.
