Rui Sauce

Rui Sauce

The sauce makes the taste of the dish complete - this fact is no secret to anyone. There are even sauces, without which this or that dish is impossible to cook. For example, the famous Provencal Bouillabaisse soup will not be so if you do not use ruy sauce in its preparation. In France, it is served to many fish soups, as well as to other fish and seafood dishes. Its savory garlic flavor perfectly emphasizes the taste of seafood cooked according to any recipe, and the bright orange-brown color makes the dish more appetizing. By the way, “Rui” in translation means “rusty”.

Cooking Features

To prepare the Rui sauce, you do not need to have high culinary skills - this recipe may well be mastered by an ordinary hostess, even a beginner. However, the knowledge of some features does not hurt her.

  • It is important to know which ingredients in the ruy sauce are mandatory, and which cooks add to your taste. Egg yolks, garlic, olive oil, saffron, hot pepper (chilli or cayenne) are among the necessary components of the Rui sauce. Additionally, it is often added lemon juice, tomato paste, herbs, mustard, ground paprika, orange peel, basil. If you meet any of the additional ingredients in the recipe, you can vary its quantity and, if you wish, eliminate it altogether. You shouldn’t treat the main ingredients so freely - they need to be put exactly as much as indicated in the recipe.
  • Eggs in gravy are used raw. For this reason, it is very important to be confident in their quality and to wash them thoroughly before use. Otherwise, the pleasure of using the sauce can turn back later with serious negative consequences.
  • Sometimes the sauce needs to be thickened. The French often use bread crumbs or boiled potatoes, mashed to a state of mash, to thicken the ruy sauce.

Whatever recipe you choose for a ruy sauce, you can only serve it to fish - there are no other options for serving this seasoning in French cuisine. Before serving, cool the sauce in the refrigerator.
