Yesterday I was asking DH what he wanted for dinner and he said how about some fish? Instantly I was inspired by a little French restaurant in our town called “Bouchons”. They serve amazing French food in a great Bistro style atmosphere. Every time I go there I get the Fish Bouillabaisse and it is amazing. So yesterday I tried to see if I could get something close.
All I can say is AMAZING!!!!!!!
I made a few changes:
1) I used a combination of clam nectar and lobster stock in place of the seafood stock. How can you go wrong with lobster 🙂
2) by accident I bought canned crushed tomatoes instead of whole tomatoes so I used the big can of crushed tomatoes and a small can of diced tomatoes. It gave the broth a very tomato-y taste that I enjoyed but still had the chunk’s of tomatoes that you would get from using whole tomatoes.
3) I used cod, prawns, scallops and mussels.
Then I served generous portions in a bowl with a side plate of fresh rye baguette and herbed butter.
The recipe was suprisingly easy and quick to make. We had come home from a soccer game and I had dinner on the table in approx 30mins.
DH loved it so I guess it was a success… oh and me too.
Note: also makes great leftovers the next day.
