Other Fresh and Pantry Ingredients:
- olive oil, white wine, garlic, lemon, salt and pepper
- Chop tomatoes. Remove tops and core fennel and then thinly slice. Peel onion and cut into thin wedges. Coarsely chop tomatoes if large; if tomatoes are small, cut into wedges or halves. Cut fingerlings into pieces about the size of the end of your thumb. Peel and slice garlic.
- Combine oil, wine, and water (or stock) in large skillet. Add fennel and potatoes, onion and garlic and lemon slices. Season with salt and pepper. Bring to a boil, then cover and reduce heat and cook for approximately 10 minutes. Add tomatoes and cook for another 10 minutes or until all vegetables are tender.
- Meanwhile, brush fish with olive oil and then sprinkle with salt and pepper. Broil in oven for approximately 8 – 10 minutes, depending on thickness of cut. (You can also grill the fish.) When done, break into bite sized pieces and add to the vegetable mixture. Add a small amount of chopped tarragon. Cook briefly, covered, on the stove top and serve hot as is with bread or over saffron rice. Garnish with fresh tarragon.
