I am always looking for new ways to cook seafoods. Bouillabaisse is a French seafood soup recipe which is great to dip some bread in.
Prawns (a dozen), baby calamari (half dozen), pot-ready mussels (a dozen), olive oil (1 teaspoon), 1 small fennel bulb (thinly sliced), leek (1, dhopped), celery (2 sticks) garlic (1, minced), chilli flasks (1/2 teaspoon), fresh thyme (2 sprigs), dry white wine (1/2 cup), chicken stock (1 cup), diced tomato (1 can, 400g), fresh parsley, salt and pepper.
What to do:
- Heat oil in a large pan saucepan over medium heat. Add fennel , leek, celery and cook for 5 minutes or until softened. Add garlic, chilli flasks, thyme and cook for 30 seconds. Add wine and bring to the boil.
- Add stock and tomatoes and bring to the boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.
- add mussels and simmer, cover for 5 minutesor until mussels have opened (discard any that do no open). Using a slotted spoon, remove mussels and transfer to a bowl. Add baby calamari and prawns to the pan and simmer until cooked through.
- Sprinkle with fresh parsley and serve with toasted French bread.
