    Spicy Rouille

    This bright red garlicky sauce (pronounced roo-EE) has a nice kick of cayenne. Traditionally an accompaniment for bouillabaisse, it's also great served as a condiment with grilled shrimp or mahi-mahi.


    • 1/4 cup chopped jarred roasted red peppers
    • 3 tablespoons reduced-fat mayonnaise
    • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
    • 1 teaspoon minced, garlic
    • 1/4 teaspoon salt
    • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
    • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
    • 1 Pinch saffron, (see Tip)


    Step 1
    Combine red peppers, mayonnaise, lemon juice, garlic, salt, pepper, cayenne and saffron in a food processor; pulse, scraping down the sides as necessary, until smooth.


    Tip: Saffron is the dried stigma of a saffron crocus. It contributes a pungent flavor and intense yellow color to classic dishes like paella. Saffron is sold in threads and powdered form.
