1/2 cup • Olive oil
2 • Leeks • chopped
2 • Onions • peeled and chopped
1/4 cup • Fresh basil leaves
1 • Fennel bulb, fronds reserved • roughly diced
2 lb • Fingerling potatoes • peeled and sliced
2 lb • Tomatoes • peeled, seeded, chopped
pinch • Saffron threads
1/2 cup • Pernod
3 qt • Fish stock
6 lb • Assorted fish • cleaned and chopped
1/2 lb • Mussels • scrubbed and debearded
20 • Shrimp • peeled and deveined
Heat 3 tablespoons of olive oil in the bottom of a stockpot. Add the leeks, onion, fennel bulb and 7 roughly chopped garlic cloves, and cook over moderate heat until translucent, about 5 minutes.

Add the tomatoes and basil and cook about 5 minutes until they begin to break down. Add the saffron and Pernod and bring to a boil.

Add the fish stock and bring to a simmer. Cook over low heat until the vegetables are super tender, about 20 - 30 minutes. Using an immersion blender, blend into a rough puree.

Heat the broiler. Place the baguette slices on a baking sheet and broil them for about 1 minute per side, until the slices are golden brown around the edges. Rub each slice with a whole garlic clove and drizzle lightly with olive oil. Set aside.

Add the potatoes to the broth and bring to a simmer. Cook over moderately high heat until the potatoes are just tender, about 10 minutes; Add the mussels, cover and cook over moderate heat until they just begin to open, about 3 minutes. Add all of the fish and shrimp, cover and simmer until the clams are open and all the fish is cooked through, about 4 more minutes.

Serve with baguette toasts and rouille
