Remove ¾ of the clams from the shells; reserve clam meat and remaining clams in shells, discard empty shells.

Gradually stir in the stock, then the reserved clam cooking liquid, remaining water and tomato paste. Cook, stirring, until the mixture boils and thickens. Stir in the thyme and potato; cook, covered, stirring occasionally, for about 10 minutes or until the potato is almost tender. Add fish; cook, covered, 5 minutes or until just cooked.
