If it's what I think it is, Sopa de pescados y mariscos a la vascas:  Mild white fish -- perhaps monkfish (rape, lotte) or maybe sea bass, shrimp, scallops, clams sometimes but I don't see them in your soup, baby octopus, garlic, the usual mirepoix suspects, I think I see some leek or fennel but am not sure, usually tomato pulp but I'm not seeing it here for sure, paprika and/or Espelette, white wine, fish stock and/or chicken stock and/or water, plenty of garlic, best olive oil, herbs including sage, parsley, basil, chives, and rosemary.  A controlled amount of saffron.  Salt and pepper of course.  Lemon juice finish.

Oui ,  Bouillabaisse,   which does not have pasta but potatoes.....and to continue....(sorry, had to ice my foot)

 

The Bouillabaisse is the foundation of a good French stew. At this point , I would take the word French out of the equation and just call it a seafood stew.

For when I hear French stew the following ingredients come to mind : Fish (depending your area), shellfish, potatoes, onions, garlic, tomatoes, bouquet garni, fennel, orange zest, olive oil, egg yolk, thyme, bay leaf, saffron, salt , fresh pepper.

Interesting post, but...How did Peter Piper procure pre-picked pre-pickled produce?  Did he pay in pesos? or pennies? or is that presumptuous?

 

And I'd say about 12 average peppers in a peck. Although if they're pre-pickled, it really depends on how they're packed.

I'm too pretentious to propose a guess......but I am still speculating......

Well, a peck of pickled peppers probably presumes a quantity inversely proportional to the presumed particular size of peppers involved with the pickling process crazy.gif

Perhaps it's preposterous, but if possible, someone needs to place a purchase order of pungent pickled peppers from their preferred purveyor, properly pack them (with the perfect amount of pressure) in a peck for proof, publish the answer, and provide this to prevent us from pondering further. Is that a push or will it placate us pun punks once and for all?

Sidenote: Just a piece of my puny mind, but we should put out a poll to decide if the original poster should be punished...or will that cause panic and pure pandemonium?

post #51 of 59

I'll guess 111 peppers

What is this Greek classic dish ?

post #59 of 59

Petals,

 

The Coral & White, had been made in Puglia, Italy and it was not Mussel Season. Summertime, is swordfish, squid, calamari, shrimp, sardine, octopus, fresh anchovies, and the "small" types of fish for dredging for Meze and Tapas, small clams called chirlas and rock fish called Urta.

 

Mussels are in season along with crevettes, large langoustines, red shrimp called Gambas, all types of shrimp or prawns; sea scallops, goose barnacles, razor clams, sea bream, hake and cod; lobsters & crab varieities between November & late February.

 

Kind regards.

Marge.
