  • 1/2 cup lightly packed fresh basil leaves, chopped
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced


  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 4 cups multi-colored cherry tomatoes
  • 1 small fennel bulb, trimmed, halved and thinly sliced
  • Kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup dry white wine
  • 1 cup bottled clam juice
  • 4 cups water
  • 2 1/2 pounds mixed mussels and clams, scrubbed and mussel beards removed
  • 1 calamari tube, cleaned and cut into thick rounds
  • 2 pounds white fish fillets, cut into 2-inch pieces
  • 3 tablespoons chopped flat-leaf parsley



Make the rouille. Place all of the ingredients in a blender and puree until smooth. Transfer to a small bowl, cover and refrigerate.

Make the stew. Heat the oil in a large Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add the tomatoes and fennel, and season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the tomatoes burst, about 5 minutes.

Stir in the garlic and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute. Pour in the wine and cook, stirring often, until it nearly evaporates, about 5 minutes. Stir in the clam juice and water, then bring to a boil.

Add the shellfish, calamari and white fish fillets. Cover and cook until the shellfish open wide, about 5 minutes. Discard any that do not open. Stir in the parsley, then season to taste with salt and pepper. Serve immediately alongside baguette slices spread with rouille.
