Salmon & Clam Bouillabaisse
INGREDIENTS
  • 1lb Wild Salmon (we used King Salmon), skin & pin bones removed
  • 1lb Small Clams (manila or small quahogs)
  • 3 tbsp Olive Oil
  • 1 Onion, small diced
  • 1 ½ cup small diced Fennel Bulb
  • 1 stalk Celery, small diced
  • 2 tbsp Tomato Paste
  • 1 Bay Leaf
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • ¼ tsp Fennel Seed
  • ¼ tsp Sargol Grade Saffron, bloomed in a small amount of hot water
  • 1 long strip Orange Peel
  • 1 diced Roasted Red Pepper
  • 2 minced cloves of Black Garlic
  • ¼ cup Pernod
  • 1 quart Low Sodium Vegetable or Fish Broth
  • Juice of 1 Orange
  • Good Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • Red Chile Flake to Taste

DIRECTIONS

1

Rinse off the clams, discarding any that are open and won’t close when pinched.

2

Put 3 tbsp of olive oil in a large, deep pot. Add the onion, fennel bulb, celery, bay leaf, salt, fennel seed, orange peel, tomato paste & saffron.

3

Cook until the onion is translucent & just starting to brown (about 10 minutes).

4

Deglaze the pot with the Pernod, then add the broth, black garlic, and red pepper.
5

Cut the salmon into 4oz portions. Season them liberally with salt.

6

Sear the salmon, (former) skin side up. When the bottom is nicely caramelized, flip the fish and continue to cook until the salmon is cooked the way you like it.

7

When the onions are nice and tender (the broth has been cooking for about 20 minutes), add the clams.

8

When the clams have opened up, add the orange juice, olive oil, salt, and red chile flakes to taste. Discard the bay leaf.

9

Serve the salmon with the toast, rouille, and bouillabase, garnished with ikura and dill fronds.
