YELLOW EYE MULLET (Aldrichetta forsteri)
The mullet when living in the Coorong takes on a distinctive sweet flavour. The flavour of the flesh varies slightly according salinity of the Coorong and food sources. The flesh is moist with a soft to medium texture. As the fish fillets are small they cook quickly. Best when fresh or frozen fresh, the sweet flavour strengthens over time, as the high oil content oxidises.
