Add remaining ingredients except clams and orange zest and simmer, partially covered, for 30 minutes, or until potatoes are very tender.
Meanwhile, scrub the clams well, place them in a pot with an inch of water, cover, and steam them until they open.

When all the clams are opened, remove them from their shells.
Reserve the clam juices and freeze them for your next batch of fish stock.
Taste the soup and correct seasoning.
