|The recipe calls for a dutch oven, I got the largest pot I could find an 8 quart stockpot. I ended up filling the whole thing!|
|Ina's recipe includes making a seafood stock from scratch. You can buy the already made stuff at the store, but I'd strongly recommend making your own... It's easy to make and makes the kitchen smell amazing.|
|So.. I have a Slap Chop... Believe it or not, it's actually really great for mincing garlic, which you need a couple cloves of for this recipe.|
|The stock also includes thyme, white wine, water, tomato paste and the shells of a pound of shrimp. It requires an hour to simmer.|
|The stock is strained and set aside. The next step is sauteing potato, onion, and fennel with olive oil back in the stock pot.|
All in all it was a great recipe, I'll definitely be making it again for special occasions :)
