For the red mullet fillets:

  • Wash the mullets and bone them.

For the creamy rice with squid:

  • Wash the squid, chop it into 1 cm dice and save the tentacles.

For the garnish:

For the decoration:

  • Finish cooking the rice in a sauté or on a frying pan with fumet and butter.
  • Sear the skin side of the red mullet fillets on the griddle and finish baking in the oven.
  • Grill the wild asparagus (they can be fried in tempura) and the squid tentacles.
  • Arrange the creamy rice with squid in the centre of the plate and place the red mullets on top.
