A fish soup dish popular in the Provence region, originally derived from the practice of the Marseille fishermen who stewed their catch of the day in a pot. The fish species used are Mediterranean specialty fish and crustaceans, but the specific species are controversial. To make Bouillabaisse, you must use saffron to color, season, and eat together with Provence garlic sauce (rouille). Although this recipe has a lot of steps and a large portion (for 8 people), the taste and texture are closest to the fish soup I had in Marseille, so it is worth a try.



1. Take 4 saffron and soak in warm water. Trim the fish and place it under the tap and continue to rinse until the water is completely clear. After cleaning, cut the fish into large pieces.

1. There are no regulations on the types of marine fish, and seafood such as shrimps, crabs and shellfish can be added. If conditions permit, some fish bones can also be added to the fish meat to make the soup more delicious and mellow.
2. Break and filter all the fish, fish bones, and vegetables to make the fish soup present a thick and fragrant texture. However, the less fish, the thinner the fish soup will be, and if you add more fish, the taste of the fish soup will be better.
3. The portion of the Provence Garlic Sauce made at one time is a bit large. It is delicious when used with Bouillabaisse or simply dipped in toast. Cover the unused ones and keep them in the refrigerator.
4. Traditionally, Bouillabaisse can be used as a starter or a main course. In Marseilles, there are usually two foods with one soup. First, they appear in the form of a previous dish, with bread, sauce and shredded cheese; then as a main course, a few pieces of fish or shrimp and crab are blanched in fish soup and eaten together, as shown on the cover.
