I'm sure there are French chefs out there with rather strong opinions as to what classifies as a Bouillabaisse. I'm certainly no French chef. I was looking for a healthy way to enjoy seafood. Since its winter here in NY, a piece of grilled fish just didn't seem hearty enough to do the trick. My mom gave me a few different recipes that I pieced together to create my own version of this delicious fish stew. Feel free to substitute the seafood for whatever looks fresh at the market that day.
