Discover Bouillabaisse à la Livournaise Italy

Apparently, bouillabaisse was prepared by fishermen using the fish that they hadn't managed to sell during the working day. It is a poor man's dish that is prepared with varying qualities of molluscs and shellfish. Cuttlefish, octopus, rockfish, slipper lobsters, mussels and various types of firm-fleshed fish are all cooked together in a tomato and stock-based sauce, making cacciuco a delightful dish, made all the more delicious thanks to the wide variety of fish used. Once ready, it is served with a slice of toasted Tuscan garlic bread.
