This is definitely a more simple version of bouillabaisse than I am used to but a good thick one that is isn't overly complicated or time consuming. I had to use some different fish (mussels and cod, instead of halibut and scallops) because of what was available in my store, but I think this recipe is easily adaptable to any number of seafood combinations. I did have to cook it for about 15 minutes longer than indicated though before the potatoes were totally done, and added a bit extra water as a result.

Wonderful recipe. I added a can of clams, some crab meat, the juice of 2 lemons and saffron and what was originally a wonderful recipe by itself, became awesome to suit the taste of my family. The more fish/shellfish the better. I'm going to try this later in the season with mussels and lobster included.
