Fantastic Fall Dish: Nevy’s Bouillabaisse

Nevy_2Autumn shouldn’t only be about the temperatures dropping, the rainy days and the wind but also about being together and enjoying wonderful food. Instead of leaving the house to the nearest restaurant; try making this warm autumn dish with the recipe of one of the top restaurants in Amsterdam. Each month one restaurant will give you a sneak-peak into their kitchen by sharing one of their recipes. Bon appetit!

Restaurant Nevy is the only seafood restaurant with a view of the IJ in Amsterdam. It is a spectacular spot where you can see the boats and (cruise) ships pass into Amsterdam.

A tip from the chefs at Nevy for this recipe: ‘To finish off the bouillabaisse, you can make a big crouton with old bread and olive oil in the oven. This can be served with aioli. Do you want to make the aioli yourself? Crush two cloves of garlic, and add 1 egg yolk and sprinkle a bit of salt. Mix it together, and add some drops of olive oil and lemon juice according to your wishes.
