1 small bulb fennel, trimmed and chopped (reserve fronds for garnish)
4 cups seafood stock
1 pack MiMi® Gourmet Tomatoes
1 Tbsp. tomato paste
Kosher salt and black pepper
1-½ lb. cod filet (or halibut, striped bass, or grouper), chopped into 2” chunks
12 sea scallops
12 large shrimp
1 doz. littleneck clams, scrubbed
1 doz. mussels, scrubbed and debearded
To a large saucepan over medium-high heat, add the extra-virgin olive oil, onion, garlic, celery, carrot, potato, fennel, and tomatoes. Cook until softened and tomatoes just begin to burst, about 8-10 minutes. Add tomato paste and stir to combine. Add in stock and bring to a moderate boil. Cook until a thick, stew-like consistency is achieved. Season to taste with Kosher salt and black pepper.
Lower heat to a simmer, and add in fish, scallops, and shrimp and cook until fish and shrimp are no longer opaque, about 4 to 5 minutes. Add in mussels and clams and cook until opened, about 3 to 4 minutes. Remove from heat.
To serve, divide the bouillabaisse seafood stew into 4 bowls. Garnish with reserved fennel frond and serve.
