The Tampa Bay Times recently featured an article enumerating the benefits of one of our local treasures...Cortez Grey Striped Mullet!
The Monday, August 10 front page feature was crafted by Tampa Bay Times Food Critic, Laura Reiley. Laura is no stranger to Florida food and the importance of supporting local food resources. She touched upon all of the aspects that make Mullet a potentially major economic driver for our local economy not to mention one great tasting fish. So if you have not had mullet in a while or better yet, if you have never tried mullet, now you can! Whether it is Beach House's Chef Will's mullet fingers, lightly breaded and fried with house made Firey Romesco sauce and tarter sauce, Mar Vista's Chef George's Mullet Grits and Greens with Vermont white cheddar cheese grits, collard greens with The Hammery smoked ham hocks (eat your heart out Paula Dean), or Sandbar's Chef Ian's lightly fried Mullet Backs with bits of sweet, tender fish, come discover how delicious this local treasure is!
