The mullet is a small meat fish very valued and therefore quite quoted. It is found in the fresh market, although sometimes it can also be purchased frozen. We should look at its red or pink color to know if it is fresh or not. Against more hue, cooler. We must also look at the flesh is form, smooth skin and bright and outgoing eyes.
