|Finely chopped garlic||1/4 cup|
|Fish stock||6 cups|

|Freshly ground black pepper||To taste|

|Large strips of orange peel||2|

Combine 2 Tbs. olive oil with 1 Tbs. garlic, 1/4 tsp. salt, and 1/4 tsp. pepper. Brush the mixture on one side of the bread slices and set aside.
For the rouille: in a medium bowl, soak the breadcrumbs, cayenne, 1/4 tsp. salt, and 1/4 tsp. pepper in ½ cup water and set aside for
15 minutes, then stir in the pesto.
In an 8-quart pot or Dutch oven, heat the remaining oil over medium-high heat until shimmering. Add the fennel (sliced lengthwise into 1/8-inch slices fronds reserved), onions, and peppers and sauté until just tender, about 4 minutes. Add the remaining garlic and continue to cook for another 15 seconds, then add the wine, Pomì finely chopped tomatoes, fish stock, potatoes, saffron, and orange peel, and bring to a boil. Lower the heat to medium, add the fish, mussels, and clams and cook, covered for about 4 to 5 minutes, until the mussels and clams have opened. Add the lobster meat and heat through. Keep warm.
Place a rack in the center of the oven and heat the oven to 450°F. Place the bread slices on a large baking sheet and toast in the oven until golden brown, about 6 to 7 minutes.
Serve the bouillabaisse with a dollop of the rouille and a bread slice. Garnish with a fennel frond.
