Warm Red Mullet and Artichoke Salad

Red mullet is shown to great advantage in this warm salad of diverse ingredients, which Maximin artfully arranged and served us as part of a springtime lunch. A highly prized Mediterranean fish, red mullet is occasionally available here, as is its unsung relative, goatfish (sometimes found in ethnic markets). In the absence of these elusive prizes, the salad can be made with red snapper.
