Rouille is a delicious and spicy red pepper mayonnaise which can be used as a dip for prawns or spread on chunks of crusty toasted bread and served with Bouillabaisse soup. This will keep for a couple of days covered in the fridge, just whisk up again before serving.
3 large cloves garlic
¼ teaspoon paprika
pinch saffron strands
2 egg yolks
250ml olive oil
In a pestle and mortar place the garlic and salt and crush. Add the pepper, paprika, cayenne pepper, saffron and egg yolks and work all these ingredients together to a smooth paste.
Slowly add the olive oil, drop by drop working it into the mixture until thickened, beating all the time. Taste and season.
For a Tomato rouille add 1 teaspoon of tomato puree with the egg yolks.
For a Basil rouille add some chopped fresh basil leaves before the oil. Sprinkle some finely chopped basil over the top of the dish before serving.
