I wanted to cook something that would have me over the stove for a good stretch of time. A fish stew sounded good, but I wanted to come up with something that used only the more environmentally responsible seafood choices. I also wanted a dish with some heat and depth, without being too thick and heavy.

                                                                  Ingredients
                                                                  • Yes No 3 tbsp olive oil

                                                                  • Yes No 2 fennel bulbs, reserving frilly tops
                                                                  • Yes No 1 large yellow onion

                                                                  • Yes No 1 tbsp grated orange zest
                                                                  • Yes No 2 bay leaf

                                                                  • Yes No 1 1/2 lb mussels in the shell
                                                                  • Yes No 1 1/2 lb shrimp
                                                                  • Yes No 1 lb squid, mixed bodies and tentacles
                                                                  • Heat the olive oil in a large saucepan. Add the pancetta and cook, stirring constantly, until pancetta begins to brown, about 3 minutes. Add the potatoes, fennel, onion and garlic and cook slowly over medium heat until the onions begin to soften, about 7 minutes.
                                                                  • Add the wine and scrape up any brown bits from the bottom of the pan. Stir in the paprika, chili flakes, saffron, orange zest, bay leaves, parsley, thyme, salt and pepper, and cook for 1 minute more.
                                                                  • Add the tomatoes and stock, and bring to a boil, then lower heat, cover and simmer for 15 minutes. Stir in the alcohol. After 5 minutes, uncover the stew and add the mussels, shrimp and squid. Bring to a boil then lower the heat, cover, and simmer gently, stirring occasionally, for 5 minutes, until the seafood is cooked through, taking care not to overcook or it will become rubbery. Discard the bay leaves and any mussels that don't open.
                                                                  • To serve, ladle the stew into deep bowls, garnish with a few fennel sprigs, and serve with warm crusty bread (sourdough works well here) and sweet butter.
