Harry's Island Bouillabaisse

Harry's Island Bouillabaisse created by Bergy

This is my brother Harry's recipe and it is very good! You can freeze leftovers (if there are any). Don't feel limited to the seafood in this recipe - he often changes the contents. Allow about 4 lbs of fish/seafood for this recipe whatever you decide on. Serve with lots of crusty bread and perhaps a salad Use raw shrimp/prawns or they will be tough

    This is a great recipe! As for adding sausage, that makes it an Italian Cioppino. Nothing wrong with that. Some spicy Italian sausage might perk it up for some of the readers who find this bland. Right before serving, I like to add some fat free half and half (cream or double cream) making it more of and Irish dish! Fine as written but there are a lot variations that can be had here. I leave out the garlic because it tends to mask the other flavors and if you add sausage it probably has garlic in it. Be sure to add your shrimp at the last moment and wait until they turn pink. If you overcook them they become rubbery.

    Whoever said adding anything other than meat to a bouillabaisse needs to get out of their box! Some chorizo or andouille will make this the best dish in the house... i'm sure this is an obvious suggestion too... but get some fresh fish! use halibut instead of cod! bouillabaisse is endless possibilities! DO WHAT YOU WANT. :)
