Gotta Love Mullet!

April 17, 2009

fisherman's favorite mullet sandwichMy favorite seafood hands down is mullet. Every couple of months or so I bribe my friends into taking a trip over to Panacea or Woodville to get my hands on some yummy fried mullet with a side of cheese grits and hush puppies.

I have noticed that many of my friends are hesitant to give mullet a try at all. I have heard, “It’s too fishy tasting.” Well, I think mullet is something that you have to try more than once before you write it off. I mean, when you were a child and your parents told you to eat your vegetables- you soon developed a taste for them. That is how I feel about mullet. From eating mullet as a small child I developed a longing for the unique taste and texture. There is really nothing like it!

If you are looking for some local restaurants that serve mullet or your favorite type of seafood, check out this list. The restaurants and retail markets have some type of Florida seafood available most times of the year.

What are your thoughts on mullet? No cracks about hair!

    Glad to see your heart’s still in seafood. I agree. Mullet is one of the best. Nothing can compare if properly taken care of post-catch and prepared well.

    Glad to see that the lowly mullet is getting some fanfare. Don’t forget to check out the mullet recipes on our web site for some creative ways to fix mullet…although it is tough to beat that fried mullet sandwich. Yum!

    Hmmm… this makes me want to go give it a try! Even though I’m not so much a fan of seafood, I could eat some cheese grits though 🙂

    Fresh mullet is delicious. The Shriners used to have the very best fish fry using mullet, Don’t know if they still do that now.

    I like mullet fried just like that picture. They’re great smoked too. I’m glad I already had lunch.

    Nothing beats fresh mullet! And the best thing about it is it’s not only yummy to eat, but it’s great bait too! You can’t beat it!

    I thought it was Florida law to be served fried mullet and grits on fridays in elementary school. A true mullet tasker will eat fried and smoked mullet at one sitting.
