  • such as sea bass, flounder, red snapper, grouper, perch, sole, pike, haddock, and cod.

** (remove fins, skin, etc. and all traces of blood)

*** peeled, cored, seeded and chopped.

**** 1 bay leaf, 1 thyme sprig, 6 parsley sprigs pinch each of grated orange peel, ground fennel seeds, basil, and oregano.

Provencal fish stew with garlic toast and Red Pepper Mayonnaise Fillet the fish or have your fishmonger do it for you.

Save the bones.

Cut the fish into 1-in (2.5-cm) chunks.

Marinate with 2 tablespoons olive oil, 1 clove chopped garlic, a few saffron threads, and a pinch of thyme for at least 1 hour.

Sauté the onions and remaining chopped garlic in 4 tablespoons olive oil for 4 minutes.

Add the fish bones, tomatoes, bouquet garni, orange peel, fennel seeds, basil, oregano, carrots, leeks, salt and pepper, and cook covered for 10 minutes.

Add the water and 1 cup of the wine and bring to a boil.

Simmer uncovered for 30 minutes, using a wooden spoon from time to time to crush the bones.

Remove from the heat.

Blend the mixture in a blender for a few seconds and then strain it into a soup pot through a fine strainer lined with cheesecloth.

Discard the residue in the strainer.

Taste the stock for seasoning. If it tastes a little thin, reduce over high heat for a few minutes until the flavor is more fully developed.

Add the clams and simmer until they just begin to open.

Add the fish and the remaining wine and cook at a rolling boil for 10 minutes.

Add the saffron threads and continue to cook for another 5 minutes.

Taste and season with Pernod, salt and pepper.

Pour into warmed individual bowls.

Meanwhile dry the baguette slices in the oven for a few minutes and then rub them with the whole cloves of garlic.

Top the slices of bread with plenty of rouille and float them in the bowls of soup.

Serve immediately.
