Red Mullets with Thyme

I dare to say that thyme is a cherish herb in France (more than herbes de province) because I see it all the time in classic recipes of French cuisine. Its association with the red mullet, a fish that reminds me of my childhood, I found it very successful.

In two words:

“True homeland is where we meet people that resemble us”.
