  • 1 pound frozen skinless halibut or other thick-fleshed white fish fillets

  • 2 tablespoon olive oil

  • ½ cup finely chopped fennel

  • ½ cup finely chopped celery (1 stalk)

  • ½ cup chopped leek or finely chopped onion

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

  • ¼ teaspoon sea salt

  • teaspoon ground black pepper

  • 4 cup vegetable broth

  • 8 ounce tiny red new potatoes, quartered

  • 8 ounce frozen peeled and deveined cooked shrimp

  • 3 tablespoon whipping cream

  • 1 tablespoon Dijon-style mustard

  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice

  • ⅛ - ¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper

  1. To partially thaw fish, let stand at room temperature while preparing Step 2.

  2. In a 4- to 6-quart Dutch oven heat oil over medium-high heat. Add fennel, celery, leek, garlic, salt, and black pepper. Cook about 10 minutes or until vegetables are tender, stirring occasionally. Add broth; bring to boiling. Stir in potatoes; reduce heat. Simmer for 10 to 15 minutes or until potatoes nearly tender.

  3. Meanwhile, cut partially thawed fish into 1-inch pieces, removing and discarding any skin. Add fish and frozen shrimp to Dutch oven. Return to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, covered, for 5 to 8 minutes or until fish begins to flake when tested with a fork.

  4. Stir in tomato, whipping cream, mustard, lemon juice, cayenne pepper, and, if desired, saffron; heat through. Garnish each serving with fennel fronds.


Fresh fish should be frozen within 2 days of purchase. Wrap tightly in moisture- and vapor-proof plastic wrap, heavy foil, or freezer paper. Store in a freezer bag or container for up to 3 months.
