I have only recently become acquainted with cooked fennel and this recipe is delicious! I didn't have shallots, so just grated some onion instead. Also added more garlic. Even if you think you don't like fennel, I suggest you try this ;-)
I think this is the first time I've cooked with fennel bulbs (fennel seeds is another matter), and I've only eaten them a handful of times. This was a good experience. The garlic, ginger & turmeric went well with the mildly licorice tinge of the fennel itself & gave the dish a spicy eastern flavor. An attractive accompaniment to curried shrimp with rice and a fruit salad. An adventure that makes me want to try further fennel recipes.
I haven't really ever made a fennel recipe featuring fennel, so this was a new experience for me. I enjoyed the different flavors and it looked pretty too. Thanks!
This is a very tasty recipe for fennel. The onions and ginger along with the shallot & garlic really gives it a good flavor as does the wine & turmic. I have only made fennel a couple of times & we belive that this is the best recipe. Thank you Minx's for posting it.
