seafood simmering sauce


Forty  Rod SASS 3935

Recommended Posts

Used to get some bottle simmering sauce for seafood from Smart and Final in Ontario, CA.  It was something special and we'd put it in a pot with shrimp, scallops, salmon, crab, and almost any other seafood.  Add a dash or several Tabasco and some butter and in a short time we had a marvelous meal.

 

Hadn't thought of it in years until this morning:  I awoke with THE URGE!

 

Anyone know of a source or have recipe for such a mess?

Are you thinking of a Bouillabaisse ?

  • 1 small red hot pepper

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • 1/4 cup soft white bread, pulled into bits

  • 1/2 cup olive oil

Bouillabaisse:

 

  • 3 pounds of at least 3 different kinds of fish fillets (such as sea bass, red mullet, haddock, halibut, cod, conger, or red porgy), cut into 2-inch pieces

  • 1 pound mussels or clams

  • 1 pound squid or crab

  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil

  • 1 cup onions, thinly sliced

  • 2 leeks, white and light green parts only, thinly sliced

  • 1/4 fennel bulb, thinly sliced, or 1 teaspoon fennel seeds

  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed

  • 3 large tomatoes, roughly chopped

  • 1 bay leaf

  • 3 sprigs fresh thyme

  • 1/2 teaspoon saffron threads

That sounds great, but I probably am too lazy to tackle it.  Then, again.............maybe not.

 

Thanks

Tastes pretty good, cheap, as easy to use as a teabag, should be in your grocery store or Walmart.

Well..............!   Back to the drawing board.

 

I've always been a good cook and an excellent baker.  Did well with gas fired grills too, due to a stint as a steak house manager.

 

This time I failed rather spectacularly.

 

I thought I had followed the directions to the letter, but ended up flushing about $45.00 worth of sea food down the drain.  

 

The raisin bran I ended up eating for supper worked well.
