  • 1 medium fennel bulb, trimmed and thinly sliced
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons fresh thyme leaves
  • 2 teaspoons dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon crushed red-pepper flakes
  • 1 dried bay leaf
  • Pinch of saffron
  • 1 (28-ounce) can whole tomatoes with juice, crushed
  • 1 1/4 cups dry white wine
  • 1 cup bottled clam juice
  • 1 pound cockles or Manila clams, scrubbed well
  • 1 pound mussels, scrubbed well and debearded
  • 1 pound skinless firm white fish fillets, such as halibut, cut into 1 1/2-inch pieces
  • 1 1/4 pounds large shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 1/2 cup loosely packed flat-leaf parsley leaves
  • 3 (2-inch) pieces orange zest, coarsely chopped
  • 1/4 cup freshly squeezed orange juice
  • 2 tablespoons capers, rinsed
  • Grilled bread, for serving

Directions

  1. Heat 1/4 cup olive oil in a low, wide stockpot over medium heat. Add onion, fennel, and garlic. Cook until onion is translucent, 3 to 4 minutes. Stir in thyme, oregano, red-pepper flakes, bay leaf, and saffron.

  2. Add tomatoes and their liquid, wine, clam juice, and 1 1/4 cups water, and bring to a simmer.

  3. Add clams and mussels; cover, simmering until shells open, 3 to 5 minutes. Season fish and shrimp with salt and pepper, and add to the pot. Cover, and simmer until fish is opaque and shrimp turn pink and begin to curl, 2 to 3 minutes.

  4. In a small food processor, combine parsley, orange zest, orange juice, capers, and remaining 1/4 cup olive oil; process until smooth.

  5. Remove pot from heat. Taste and adjust for seasoning. Serve with a dollop of the parsley mixture and the grilled bread.
