La Bourride


Bourride Base, (recipe follows)
Pinch saffron
1 cup julienne leeks 
3 cups peeled, seeded, and chopped tomatoes
Juice and strips of zest from 1 orange 
1 cup julienne fennel 
2 tablespoons chopped garlic 
2 tablespoons finely chopped freshly parsley leaves
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
4 pounds of white fish, such as mullet, ocean perch or Pollack, cleaned and filleted 
1 cup Aioli, (recipe in Sauces)
8 egg yolks 
6 to 8 (1-inch) slices crusty French bread
Rouille, (recipe in Sauces)

Put the stock in a large, heavy pot on medium heat and bring to a gentle boil. Add the saffron, leeks, tomatoes, orange juice, orange zest, fennel, garlic, and parsley. Season with salt and pepper. Simmer the liquid for 6 minutes. Season the fish with salt and pepper. Add the fish to the pot. Cook for 12 minutes, or until the fish is flaky. Remove the fish and set aside. In a large saucepan, over low heat, combine 1/4 cup of the Aioli and the egg yolks, together.  Whisk until smooth. Slowly whisk into the fish liquid. Continue to cook until the liquid starts to thicken, 2 to 3 minutes. Remove from the heat. To serve, place the croutons in the center of each bowl. Ladle the sauce over the bread. Lay a couple pieces of fish on top of the crouton.  Serve the remaining Aioli and Rouille in sauce boats to the side of the La Bourride.
