2 pounds mullet fillets, approximately 1/2 inch thick
2 tablespoons orange juice
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 tablespoon grated onion
2 teaspoons dried oregano
1 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 (3-ounce) can tomato paste
2 (10-ounce) packages frozen broccoli, thawed and drained
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese


1. Preheat broiler. Place fillets in glass casserole dish. In a small bowl, combine orange juice, soy sauce, onion, oregano and pepper and pour over fillets. Broil 5 inches from heat for 5 minutes; remove from oven. Drain and reserve liquid. Reduce oven temperature to 350 degrees F.
2. In a glass measuring cup, combine reserved liquid, tomato paste and add enough water to make 10 ounces; set aside. Cover top of fish with broccoli then tomato sauce; top with cheese. Return casserole to oven and bake at 350 degrees F for 5 minutes or until mixture is bubbling.

Mullet is a soft white fish with a slightly strong flavor. It is best served roasted, pan-fried or, as in this recipe, broiled.
