Step 1

Wash, clean out, and chop the fish (or better yet, ask the fishmonger)

Step 2

In a pot, combine the fish, oil, vegetables, and spices. Put the pot in the fridge for one hour.

Step 3

Take it out of the refrigerator, cover it with water or fish stock and bring to a boil. Cook for 10 to 15 minute depending on the fish.

Step 4

To serve, you can either lay the fish out on a platter, and spoon the broth into a bowl - using the bread as croutons, or just spoon all the fish, bread, and broth into one bowl.

The freshness of the fish, and the quality of the oil and saffron will determine how good your dish is, so be picky when purchasing!
