2-serving instructions (4-serving modifications in red)

Wash produce before use


Toast the garlic bread

Heat the oven to 350°F.
  • Finely chop, press, or grate enough garlic to measure 2 teaspoons [4 tsp]; set aside half for the bouillabaisse.
  • Cut the ciabatta roll in half horizontally, then cut the halves in half crosswise.
In a small bowl, using a fork, mash half the garlic with 1 tablespoon [2 TBL] butter (from your pantry) or stir with 1 to 2 tablespoons oil. Season with salt and pepper.
On a sheet pan, place the ciabatta, cut sides up, and spread with the garlic mixture. Toast in the oven until golden brown, 8 to 10 minutes.
While the garlic bread toasts, prepare the bouillabaisse.


Start the bouillabaisse

  • Cut the fennel lengthwise into quarters and cut away the core; cut the quarters lengthwise into ¼-inch-thick slices.
  • Strip the parsley leaves from the stems; coarsely chop the leaves for garnish.
In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 to 2 teaspoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add the fennel, season with salt and pepper, and cook, stirring occasionally, until starting to soften, 2 to 4 minutes. Stir in the piment d’Espelette and remaining garlic and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute. Transfer to a medium bowl. Do not clean the pan.


Finish the bouillabaisse

Prep and cook instructions are almost identical for both fish options.
  • Pat the fish dry with a paper towel; season generously with salt and pepper.
In the same pan used for the fennel, warm 1 to 2 teaspoons oil over high heat until hot but not smoking. Add the fish and cook until browned on one side, 2 to 3 minutes. Turn the fish and add the fennel mixture, tomatoes, and 1 cup [2 cups] water; season with salt and pepper. Bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer, and cook until the fish is opaque and flaky, 1 to 2 minutes for cod and 2 to 4 minutes for halibut. Remove from the heat, stir in the sumac, and season to taste with salt and pepper.


Transfer the bouillabaisse to individual bowls, garnish with the parsley, and serve with the garlic bread.
