    French Tart's Note:

    Most coastal regions in France have their own special seafood & fish recipes; this is an incredibly tasty soup from the Northern French port of Dieppe. It is a meal in itself - a tangy fish soup served with Rouille, garlic croutons and grated Gruyere or Emmenthal Cheese. There is a hidden "kick" by way of the added Cayenne pepper, which marries so well with the tomatoes & fish. I have posted a recipe for Rouille in RecipeZaar - this is an essential extra, the literal translation meaning "Rust" which points towards the colour - it is a very garlicky & hot mayonnaise based sauce.

      This was so different from anything I've ever made or eaten before. I was skeptical while it was cooking, but the end results was lovely. The rouille & gruyere cheese really made the dish, so don't leave them out. Thanks FT for sharing this recipe.

      This smelled GREAT while cooking, although I know I added way too much pepper, as the end result was very, very, very spicy. I used cod and sauvignon blanc for the wine. I think the amount of liquids may need to be increased the next time I make this. The combination of the rouille with this is very intense, so again watch the spices--and don't overdo the saffron. Thanks for the recipe.
