Berghoff Restaurant Bouillabaisse

When I got my first job, I used my first paycheck to treat my parents to dinner at the Berghoff Restaurant. It was Friday, and bouillabaisse was the special. There was no salmon in it then; at least, I don't remember any. This isn't cheap, so as with any fresh fish dish, use whatever combination of fish and shellfish is available and seems fresh. From the Berghoff Family Cookbook.
