  1. Heat the olive oil in a large saucepan, and add the onions, leeks, chopped tomatoes, and garlic. Cook and stir over a low heat for a few minutes until all vegetables are soft.
  2. Stir in the fennel, thyme, bay leaf, and orange zest. Add shellfish and boiling water; stir to combine. Season to taste with salt and black pepper. Turn up the heat to high, and boil for about 3 minutes to allow the oil and water to combine.
  3. Add fish, and reduce the heat to medium. Continue cooking for 12 to 15 minutes, or until fish is cooked. The fish should be opaque and tender, but still firm. Fish should not be falling apart.
  4. Taste the bouillabaisse and adjust the seasoning. Stir in saffron, and then pour soup into a warmed tureen or soup dishes. Serve immediately.

After chopping up the veggies, the soup was very easy to prepare. It is satisfying and full of flavor. I will be making this soup on a regular basis.

Had this last night at a dinner party and it was sensational! Crab, lobster, scallops, shrimp, mussels, clams and scallops were used in this dish. Truly magnificent and restaurant worthy!!

Excellent. I used shrimp, scallops, mussels(in shell), clams(in shell) and grouper cheeks. My fish store, which is on the shore, sells to restaurants and has packs of grouper cheeks just for t...

This is so good; everyone wanted me to cook again.
