Peel tomatoes by scoring a cross in the base of each tomato and blanching them in boiling water. Using a slotted spoon, lift each tomato out of the hot water and into a second bowl of iced water. After a few minutes the skins should slip off easily. Cut tomatoes into quarters.
Heat butter and olive oil in a large pot. Add leeks, garlic and fennel and sauté until soft. Add the white wine and cook for 1 minute.

Add the prawns, mussels, fish and crab. Simmer for 5 minutes or until fish is cooked through. Discard any mussels that do not open. Sprinkle over lemon thyme.
