  • 1 fennel bulb, cored and thinly sliced
  • 1 15 oz. can no-salt-added diced tomatoes

Put potatoes in small pot and cover with cold water. Bring potatoes to boil then reduce heat to simmer until tender, 8 to 10 minutes. Add potatoes and 1 cup of cooking water to skillet. Turn heat to low. Add fish and very gently simmer until fish is cooked through, about 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
