I've eaten mullet in the Falklands a few times and found them a bit bland compared to bass, bream, turbot or brill.

They're very nice Bob. I only take ones from the sea here. There's no sewage outlet anywhere close. I remember a blind taste test conducted by Hugh Fernley Wittingstall in Cornwall once where he served up grey mullet and bass. The mullet came out top!

I like sea bass, will give mullet a try if I can find any ! They do occur in Cyprus waters but not easy to find like the Spanish ones .

Good cod bait cuttlefish, not sure about the mullet or soup.

Squid strip under a float or behind a drilled lead was an old form of bass lure, cuttle being tougher would also do.

In this instance, to continue the TV theme I will go crocodile Dundee on you re sewage outlet mullet....
It tastes like **** but you can survive on it!



In fairness, from clean water, it's a nice fish!
