  • Make fish fillets with red mullet, and save the heads and spines. I suppose you can have that done at the fish market, as I certainly will. Put all in pot and toast in oil.
  • Add the chopped veggies and let saute for a few minutes add herbs; add tomatoes. Cover with water, let boil and reduce until you have a soup.
  • Pass liquid and all in strainer and bring back to fire, taste for salt and pepper.
