Taste Scoring
★★★★★  Cooking time: 75 minutes, Preparation: 15 minutes + Hot Cook: 60 minutes


It is a delicious soup full of umami flavor from the seafood. I used frozen and canned ingredients to save money, but no problem at all! The soup was simmered for an hour in the Hot Cook without water, and it turned out to be delicious with just the water from the seafood and vegetables. While cooking the soup, our house smelled like I was in the South of France!

Over the weekend, I made Bouillabaisse, one of the world’s top three soups, in Hot Cook.

Bouillabaisse has a strong image of being a luxury dish, using large head-on prawns and mussels that are hard to buy in ordinary supermarkets.

But you don’t have to use such expensive ingredients to enjoy a delicious Bouillabaisse.

  • The only seasoning you need to add is salt. The rest just comes from the umami flavor from the ingredients.
  • The amount of salt to use is calculated based on Ms. Kazuyo Katsuma’s method of “ingredients + 0.6% of water.

I grilled some toast and served it with Bouillabaisse soup. Of course, I enjoyed several glasses of wine with the soup.

If I ever buy mussels at the supermarket, I will try to cook an authentic type of soup.

But even with frozen seafood and canned asari clams, you can still enjoy a feeling of a luxurious vacation in the south of France!
