Rouille Sauce

  • Preparation 15 MIN
  • Servings 1
  • Makes 1 cup (250 ml)
No bouillabaisse is complete without rouille, a garlicky, saffron- (and sometimes tomato-) based mayonnaise spread on crusty baguette for dipping.



  1. In a bowl, whisk together the egg yolk, mustard, tomato paste, garlic and salt. Slowly add one-third of the oil, drop by drop, whisking constantly. When the emulsion begins to form a mayonnaise, drizzle in the remaining oil while whisking. Season with pepper. Whisk in the lemon juice and saffron.
  2. Spoon the rouille into a serving bowl and refrigerate until ready to use. The rouille will keep for 5 days in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
