Preparation of the strawberry coulis

A coulis (/kˈl/ koo-LEE) is a form of thin sauce made from puréed and strained vegetables or fruits. A vegetable coulis is commonly used on meat and vegetable dishes, and it can also be used as a base for soups or other sauces. Fruit coulis are most often used on desserts. Raspberry coulis, for example, is especially popular with poached apples or Key lime pie.

Older uses[edit]

The term originally referred to the released juices of cooked meats, then usually to puréed meat-based soups, and today can sometimes refer to a puréed soup of shellfish.[1]
