From the Test Kitchen

Bouillabaisse is an incredibly dynamic dish, with origins in Provence, France. The stew was made with leftover catch, usually rockfish, that fishermen were unable to sell. But any variety and number of fish were thrown in, alongside vegetables and Provençal herbs and spices. For our bouillabaisse, we’re using only the finest, freshest catch. But we’re sticking to tradition by using Herbes de Provence in our spice blend and serving the fish stew with toasted, garlicky baguettes.

Preheat the oven to 400°F. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Remove the fish from the refrigerator to bring to room temperature. Slice the baguette in half lengthwise. Cut the fingerling potatoes into thin rounds. Peel the garlic; thinly slice 2 of the cloves, leaving the remaining clove whole. Remove and discard the kale stems; roughly chop the leaves. Peel and thinly slice the onion. Pick off and reserved a few of the fennel fronds (the thread-like tops of the plant); thinly slice the stems. Remove and discard the core of the fennel bulb; thinly slice the bulb. Halve the tangerine; squeeze the juice into a small bowl. Using the flat side of your knife, smash the olives. Remove and discard the pits; roughly chop the olives.
