Sauce Rouille:

The traditional relation to fish stew and soupe de poisons, this fiery, rust-coloured condiment has a plurality of versions and variations. Some inhabitants add potatoes; several add breadcrumbs; some add saffron; few add pounded red mullet or rascasse livers!

Rouille ever wants much than a indication of bake. This can be provided by dry red chillies, by long pepper true pepper or by the North African harissa composition - but warmness in that essential be!

This formula is ample for active 8 servings of soupe de poisons.

If the effect seems too thick, it can be dilute downhill next to a least fish banal - or freshly beside frying sea.

An alternative mode is to add a spoon of burning North African harissa join to 150ml garlic sauce (garlic mayo). But the archetypal style is in all likelihood the high-grade.
