one portion of red mullets
ripe tomatoes
salt and pepper
some sugar
some fresh butter


Clean the mullets, rinse and place them in a bowl and put salt on them.

Peel the tomatoes, mash them and place them in a skillet  to cook  in their own juices.

Add salt, pepper and a pinch of sugar, to avoid the sour taste of the tomatoes.

Cover with a lid and leave the tomatoes to simmer for about 15 – 20 minutes.

Just before it  is ready place the mullets in the tomato sauce, making sure that there are plenty of tomatoes covering the mullets.

Leave them to cook without the lid for a few minutes and once they are ready place some butter on each mullet .


Sprinkle with plenty of finely chopped parsley and serve.
