Mediterranean Style Fish Stew

Some of my favorite flavors are fennel, tomato and saffron, so I made a fish stew incorporating them with the addtion of garlic and onions. All these flavors make a very intense and flavorfull soup, a nice addtion would be clams or mussels.

6 ounces Sea bass, large dice
1 clove garlic, sliced
1/4 yellow onion, sliced thin
1/4 fennel bulb, small diced
1 Roma tomato, seeded and diced
1 pinch saffron
2 cups water or fish stock
1 teaspoon parsley, chopped
1 Tablespoon extra virgin olive oil

1. Saute the vegetables in olive oil till soft.
2. Add the fish, saffron and liquid.
3. Simmer till the fish is cooked, about five minute.
4. Adjust seasoned to taste and garnish with parsley.

Yield= 1
