DIRECTIONS

  • In a large dutch oven, cook bacon until crisp and fat is rendered. Pour off all but 2 tablespoons of the bacon fat. Add the butter, onions, leeks, and celery, and sauté until translucent, about 5 minutes.
  • Add the garlic, tomatoes, saffron, and seasonings. Stir for about 2 minutes, then add the white wine and cook for 5 minutes, or until almost all the liquid has evaporated. Add fish stock and bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer and cook for 45 minutes.
  • Preheat oven to 300°F At the end of 45 minutes, add the potatoes. Simmer for 10 minutes.
  • Add the lobster. Return to a boil and cook at a strong simmer for 5 minutes.
  • Add the fish chunks, shrimp, and clams. Cook until the fish is just cooked, but not yet flaking apart and the clams open. Meanwhile, Make the Peppery toast by brushing one side of each French bread slice with olive oil, sprinkle with cracked pepper, and toast in the oven until crisp (about 12 minutes).
  • Remove the bay leaves, taste for seasoning, and serve immediately with the Peppery toast for dunking into soup.
