Stuffed Grey Mullet
|Grey mullet||12 Ounce|
|Ginger slices||1 Small|
|Ginger sherry||1 Teaspoon|
|Prawns||2 , cleaned and chopped|
Scale and wash the mullet.
Cut through the belly and remove the insides.
Break the spinebone at the head and tail ends and carefully remove it.
Remove the flesh away from the skin on both sides, leaving the head and tail intact.
Pick out and discard any small bones remaining in the flesh.
Chop the flesh.
Add the finely chopped ginger and onion, seasonings and sherry and the prawns.
Mix all together to a smooth paste.
Spread the mullet, inside up, on a board and sprinkle the cornflour all over it.
Add the paste and bring the skin on each side over it to shape the fish into its original form, patting it well so that the skin will adhere to the stuffing.
Place the fish on an oiled oval plate, steam it for 15 minutes.
