Drain and add cod to a small saucepan along with 2 cups water, wine, cloves and bay leaf. Bring to a simmer and cook for 10 to 12 minutes or until cod flakes easily with a fork. Drain and discard cloves and bay leaf.

In a stock pot add oil and saute the onions, garlic, poblanos and celery over moderate heat until crisp-tender. Add the fennel seed, wine and stock and bring to a simmer for 6 to 8 minutes. Add the okra, cod and tomatoes and simmer for 3 minutes. Correct seasoning with salt, pepper, and drops of Tabasco, if desired. Remove from heat and stir in corn, cilantro, optional capers and serve immediately in a warm bowl. This recipe yields ?? servings.
