  3. Fry for another few minutes, add the wine, saffron and bay leaf and let it simmer until reduced by half.
  4. Add the potatoes, tomatoes, and  water and bring to a gentle boil. 
  5. Break up the tomatoes with a spoon on the side of the pan and simmer for 20-25 minutes until the potatoes are just tender, and the tomatoes have broken down.
  6. Season well, then gently add the fish into the sauce, arrange the squid, prawns, clams and mussels on the pan. 
  7. Put the lid on and cook for 6-8 minutes until the mussel and clam shells have opened, the prawns are cooked and the fish is flaky. 
  8. Toast the bread, rub lightly with the halved garlic clove and drizzle with olive oil.
