Because this Fisherman's Stew takes only 5 to 10 minutes to cook, you can rest assured that the seafood maintains its structure and flavor and never gets mushy or muddled-tasting. That's why you want to choose the best quality ingredients you can; Chef John recommends a firm white fish, such as sea bass or halibut, paired with shrimp, mussels, clams, and calamari. Have your seafood ready to throw into the quick and easy broth, which involves crushed tomatoes. chili flakes, and white wine poured over sauteed garlic and fennel slices. Garnished with fennel fronds, this is sure to be the prettiest stew you've ever seen. Get Chef John's recipe for Fisherman's Stew.
