Method - Bouillabaisse:

Heat a dash of olive oil in a frypan. Sauté the onion and garlic until transparent.

Add the fennel and braise for a few minutes, then add the leek and tomatoes.

Stir the tomato purée in with the vegetables. Cook for a few more minutes, stirring frequently.

Sprinkle the flour over the sautéed vegetables, stir briefly and flambé with a dash of pastis. Please note: never flambé dishes under an extractor hood which is switched on!

Pour the fish stock into the pan. Add the thyme, bay leaves and saffron threads. Simmer for 45 minutes over a low heat.

Cut the fish into bite-sized pieces. Devein the king prawns by making an incision along the back and removing the intestinal tract.

Add the fish and king prawns to the pan and poach for a few minutes. Season with salt and pepper.


Method - “Rouille” Sauce

Crush the garlic and stir in the egg yolks. Slowly add half the oil, stirring consistently. Add the bouillabaisse stock and tablespoon of vinegar. Now add the rest of the oil very slowly, still stirring consistently. Season with salt, lemon juice and cayenne pepper. Stir in the tomato purée and finish with the saffron.

Serve the bouillabaisse with warm, crusty garlic bread and rouille.

Garnish with fennel leaves.
