  1. In a medium sized pot, bring enough water, to cover 2 to 3 whole tomatoes, to a boil. Score the skin of the tomatoes and boil them until the tomato skin can be easily removed and the tomatoes are tender, about 30 seconds. Peel and chop the tomatoes and set aside.
  2. In a large pot, slowly saute minced garlic and olive oil over low heat. Add the onion and the stewed tomatoes. Add the carrots, fennel, and chicken stock to the pot and bring to a boil. Lower to a simmer and cook until the carrots and fennel are tender, about 10 minutes.
  3. In a large pan, heat a little olive oil over medium-high heat. Season the monkfish and sea scallops with salt and pepper and sear the fish in the pan, about 30 seconds per side. Once the fish has been seared, add it to the stew. Season the catfish fillets with salt and pepper, and then lightly dredge them in flour. Pan-sear the catfish in olive oil until both sides of the fish have browned. Using the wine, deglaze the pan and heat until a sauce forms. Add the sauce to the stew.
  4. In another medium sized pot, heat the mussels over low heat until they open, in order to extract some of the water. Discard any unopened mussels.
  5. To serve, begin with 2 slices of garlic bread on the plate, and top with 1 of the pan-seared catfish fillets. Ladle some of the seafood stew on top of the catfish and the bread and garnish the plate with the mussels and freshly chopped parsley.
