A rouille is a French mayonnaise, spread on toasted bread, that accompanies fish stews and soups wonderfully because of its unbeatable garlic and spices zing. It’s quite easy to make as you just need to add a few ingredients to a normal mayonnaise.

  • a glass and a half of olive oil
  • French mustard
  • 1 egg yolk 
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 1 tablespoon saffron powder
  • cayenne pepper
  • red chilli paste or harissa
  • salt and pepper

In a small bowl, put salt and pepper, the egg yolk, a tablespoon of French mustard, the garlic chopped very finely a bit of cayenne pepper, the saffron and a squirt of chilli paste or harissa. Mix it all until it makes a paste. Then add olive oil very little by little and whisk it all in each time before adding more.

When you have added all the oil, put it in the fridge for 1 hour.
