Mix and match the seafood to your own liking, with clams, mussels and/or squid. You can substitute the turmeric for 10-12 saffron strands.

Very delicious, and very Mediterranean! I don't eat shellfish, so I just doubled the amount of white fish, and I used a combination of hake and haddock. I'm also not a big fan of fennel, but Annelie's told me not to leave it out, so I used half a bulb, and it was pretty good. For those of you who like the flavor of fennel, go for the whole bulb. I used vegetable stock (made from powder) and added some cream at the end, heavenly!
