  • 1 clove garlic, halved

Combine stock, wine, tomatoes, shallots, fennel bulb, crushed red pepper flakes and salt in a large pot and bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to medium and simmer, uncovered, until vegetables are tender, about 10 minutes.
Meanwhile, preheat the broiler. Slice baguette on an angle into about eight 3/4-inch slices. Place on a baking sheet and broil until toasted, about 1 minute per side. Rub toasts on both sides with cut side of garlic; discard any remaining garlic.

Stir Swiss chard into pot and cook until just tender, about 3 minutes. Add tilapia and shrimp and cook until just cooked through, about 5 minutes. Serve garnished with chopped fennel fronds and with toasts on the side.
