  Canned minced clams 14 Ounce, drained (2 Cans, 7 Ounce Each, Save The Liquid)
  Fideo pasta/Any other small soup pasta 1⁄2 Pound (Vermicelli)
  Garlic 3 Clove (15 gm), minced
  Bay leaf 1
  Chopped parsley 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Water 4 Cup (64 tbs)
  Dry white wine 2 Cup (32 tbs)
  Ripe tomatoes/One-pound, twelve-ounce can of tomatoes, broken up 6 Large, peeled, seeded, finely chopped
  Fish fillets 2 Pound, cut into large pieces (Cod, Halibut, Haddock, Or Other Fresh White Fish)
  Flour 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Lemon 1 , juiced
  Salt To Taste

Directions

Heat the olive oil in a large soup pot.
Add the onion, celery, carrot, leeks, and garlic, and saute 5 minutes.
Add the bay leaf, parsley, water, wine, tomatoes, and the liquid from the canned clams.
Bring to a boil, lower heat, simmer uncovered 30 minutes.
Add the pasta.
Cook for 5 minutes, or until the pasta is still very resistant to the bite.
(For convenience, the term "very al dente" will be used to denote very firm, very lightly-cooked pasta.) Season the fillets and roll them in flour.
Wrap the fish loosely in cheesecloth and tie the ends.
Add this to the soup pot and cook 20 minutes, uncovered, until tender, or until the fish can be flaked with a fork.
Unwrap the fish and flake it.
Add the fish, clams, and lemon juice to the pot.
Heat until the liquid starts to simmer.
Taste for seasoning and serve with a bowl of Garlic Sauce and crusty bread.
