the perfect substitute

Although I have a dirty “harbour fish” reputation, the mullet that you buy from your fishmonger comes from offshore fisheries.

Chelon labrosus or other grey mullet species (Mugil spp. or Liza spp.)

I’m a perfect alternative to overfished sea bass. I taste almost the same and I cost less!
