About this recipe: This looks and tastes good but is quite low in calories. I think it's worth going to the trouble of arranging it beautifully on the plate - especially if you are on a diet! Sometimes I add a few drops of pesto to add some colour but you could sprinkle over some balsamic vinegar. Red mullet has a delicate flavour but is a firm fish and easy to cook.


Serves: 4 

  • 100g brown rice
  • 2 oranges
  • 1 lemon
  • 1 teaspoon caster sugar
  • 10g butter
  • 4 red mullet fillets
  • 4 sun-dried tomatoes
  • fresh spinach leaves
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Prep:15min  ›  Cook:10min  ›  Ready in:25min 

  1. Cook the rice as directed on the instructions and set aside.
  2. Zest the oranges and lemons and squeeze out the juice. Cook the juice with the zest and a tablespoon of sugar in a saucepan over low heat.
  3. Add a tablespoon of butter to a frying pan and gently cook red mullet fillets for 3 minutes over medium heat. Season.
  4. On a serving plate, use a 6 cm diameter round biscuit cutter as a mould and spoon in the rice. Top with one sun-dried tomato and some spinach leaves to add some colour.
  5. Place the fish on top, and spoon over or drizzle some citrus syrup.
