Mussels With tomato sauce

Recipe: Mussels (Moules Marinières)

  I have fond memories of Moules Marinières and Steak Tartare in many a French bistro sipping a glass of local white wine with the Moules and a glass of red with the Steak Tartare. My choice always with Moules or Huitres (oysters) is a glass of Sancerre.

  Monkfish is one of my favorite fish. Often called “poor man’s lobster,” it can be prepared many ways to enhance its wonderful flavor. In France, it is a bistro favorite.

  This recipe originated on the Mediterranean coast. “Bourride” is a delicate fish soup made with monkfish and served with croutons topped with aioli. A true taste of Provencal cuisine.
