In a frying pan with high edges bring to boil water for spaghetti. In the meantime, finely chop the parsley, peel garlic and cut into slices.
Now salt the fish, and put a slice of garlic, a sprinkling of pepper and a little 'chopped parsley in the inside of the fish. Pour the flour in a shallow dish and start sprinkke the fish on all sides. Let stand aside.
Then in a nonstick pan pour a dribble of extra virgin olive oil and bring to high heat. Now fry the fish on both sides until it forms a brown crust, then remove from pan. After that pour into the same pan the chopped tomatoes, basil, some chopped parsley, the remaining garlic and sugar and cook over medium heat. Meanwhile chop the fried mullet with a fork (this is a laborious work because they have enough bones) Later I will propose the method of threading. Pour the chopped fish into the sauce and lower the fire.
If the water for pasta boils already pour 1 tablespoons of salt and toss the pasta. At the end of pastas cooking time(usually eight minutes), drain well and pour in the sauce turning slowly with two forks (not to make the sauce crash. 'I have held four heads of the fish in hot pot as a decoration.
