    Manami's Note:

    A great Sunday meal, in front of the fire or the TV! Rouille is the classic accompaniment to Bouillabaisse :), this spicy, creamy puree is a delicious dip for fresh bread as well as a topping for the croutons; a luscious way to use up stale bread! We made this at Adelaida's house and they were all watching one of the soccer games. These tasty morsels dress up even the simplest soups & they are very good! We use red snapper in this dish, but cod, haddock, halibut, or other fresh white fillets will work & the Rouille (roo-EE) is traditionally spicy. This is a combination of a couple recipes. Hope you enjoy! ;)

      Delicious and relative easy to make! Takes a lot of prep, not exactly the recipe to choose if you've only got an hour.
