Rouille Sauce

In the south of France, this spicy sauce is traditionally spread on toasted croutons and dipped into bouillabaisse. But its delicious flavors complement more than just fish soup. Try croutons and rouille with your favorite soup, or use the sauce as a sandwich spread or dip. If oil rises to the top during storage, stir or blend the rouille in a food processor before using.
