Step 1: Mullet

Remove the bones from the fish using a peeling knife or tweezers.

Cut out two rectangles of greaseproof paper, slightly larger than the fish fillets. Place the fish on them, skin side up.

Mix the egg yolk with a teaspoon of water and a pinch of salt. Spread this glaze over the fillets of fish on the skin side using a brush.

Peel the potatoes, wash them, and cut them into very thin slices. Shape them into scales using an apple corer.
