    ** In 1988, The New York Times ran the Le Bernardin chef
    Gilbert Le Coze's famed recipe for bouillabaisse, with
    its 13 steps and 25 ingredients. And that was pretty
    much the symbolic end for the Marseillaise fish stew:
    over the years, chefs made it so complicated that no one
    actually wanted to eat it, let alone source all the fish
    and cook it.

    The 1904 recipe I settled on contained equal parts water
    and oil and half the amount of white wine. The saffron-
    and herb-scented oil insulates the fish and dresses it
    as the fish breaks down, making for a rich and rustic
    oily broth. It completely changed my sense of what
    bouillabaisse could be. -- Amanda Hesser

    In a large saucepan, heat the oil over medium-high heat.
    Add the tomatoes, onion, carrot, saffron, bay leaf and
    parsley. Peel and crush 1 garlic clove and add it to the
    pan. Add the fish, shrimp and lemon juice, season with
    salt and pepper and boil for 10 minutes. Add the fish
    broth and wine, bring to a rapid simmer and cook until
    the fish is just cooked through. Adjust the seasoning,
    adding more saffron, lemon juice, salt and pepper as

    Rub the toasts with the remaining peeled garlic clove.
    Set a toast in the bottom of each of 6 bowls and ladle
    the soup on top.

    Serves 6.
