Step 2: Instructions:

Grate garlic with a microplane, or finely chop. In a small, flat dish mash garlic and 1/4 teaspoon salt into a paste with a fork or the back of a spoon, mash anchovies into garlic paste; set aside.

Tie parsley, thyme and bay leaf together with kitchen string; set aside.

In a large heavy soup pot or Dutch oven heat olive oil over medium heat, add carrot, celery, onion and remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt and cook, stirring often, until onion is tender, about 5 minutes. Add garlic and anchovy mixture and cook 1 minute. Add tomatoes and cook until tomatoes are hot, about 5 minutes.

Add water, potatoes, zucchini, herbs and pepper; cook until potatoes and zucchini are tender, 25-30 minutes. With the soup at a simmer (not boiling) add fish and cook 5-10 minutes or until fish is cooked through. Remove herbs and serve.
