  • Summary

    Your eyes aren't playing tricks on you: Yes, after simmering the fish with aromatics, wine, and tomatoes, we advise you to force every last bit through a food mill—heads, tails, bones, and all—for an incredibly lush soup, tasting of a beautiful union between land and sea (the food mill will strain any unwanted solids to be discarded). A garlicky rouille, exotic with a touch of crumbled saffron, further coaxes out the natural richness of the fish.

    Ingredients

    • 4 medium leeks (white and pale green parts only), chopped
    • 1 large fennel bulb, stalks discarded, reserving fronds for garnish, and bulb chopped
