The BEST Thermomix bouillabaisse

This is just what I used to make on the stove top adapted for the TM31
We have it instead of take away as it is quicker and nicer

So on a chilly Friday you buy some good quality marinara mix and either make or buy some nice bread to go with it. Tonight I have 450g fish, scallops, mussels and prawns.
Grab your veroma and spread the fish evenly through the dish

You also need
a large onion, peeled and halved
2-3 cloves of garlic, peeled
1 red chilli, deseeded and halved
a handful of fresh basil

Place these in the TM31 and chop for 5 seconds speed 5

Then add
6 tomatoes quartered
1000 ml water
1 tablespoon olive oil
2-3 tablespoons stock paste
1/2 cup of white wine
pinch saffron
salt and pepper

Place veroma on top. Cook 20 minutes Veroma speed 2

While it cooks you can set a fancy table or have a relaxing drink or three with anyone else eating with you
When it is done you won't believe how little the seafood has shrunk - it's all plump, juicy and tasty
Spoon into bowls and top with the soup which is absolutely delicious

That's it. Serves 4 or 2 as a complete meal. Preparation time less than 5 minutes, Cooking time 25 including prep. Weight Watchers points 5.
