Prep and cook time:  1¾ hours      Serves 6-8

3      tablespoons avocado oil
1      large fennel bulb, thinly sliced
1      onion, chopped
3      large shallots, chopped
2      teaspoons salt
4      large garlic cloves, finely chopped
¾     teaspoon or more dried crushed red pepper flakes to taste
¼     cup tomato paste
1      28-ounce can diced tomatoes in juice
1½   cups dry white wine
5      cups fish stock
1      bay leaf
1      pound manila clams, scrubbed
1      pound mussels, scrubbed and debearded
1      pound uncooked large shrimp, peeled and deveined
1½   pounds assorted firm-fleshed fish fillets, such as halibut or salmon, cut into 2-inch chunks

Heat the oil in a very large pot over medium heat. Add the fennel, onion, shallots, and salt and sauté until the onion is translucent, about 10 minutes. Add the garlic and red pepper flakes, and sauté for 2 minutes. Stir in the tomato paste. Add tomatoes with their juices, wine, fish stock, and bay leaf. Cover and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to medium-low. Cover and simmer until the flavors blend, about 30 minutes.

Add the clams and mussels to the cooking liquid. Cover and cook until the clams and mussels begin to open, about 5 minutes. Add the shrimp and fish. Simmer gently until the fish and shrimp are just cooked through, and the clams are completely open. Stir gently about 5 minutes longer. Discard any clams and mussels that do not open. Season the soup, to taste, with more salt and red pepper flakes. Ladle the soup into bowls or serve over brown rice linguini.
