One of the most underutilized vegetables with its anise undertones, it's one of the few I love. A woman in the grocery today gave me her recipe for it on the barbecue.
- In a small bowl, whisk together oil, vinegar, mustard, and garlic, salt and pepper to taste.
- Cut off fennel stalks, quarter fennel bulb lengthwise (she said some remove the core, she doesn't bother). Brush each fennel quarter with marinade.
- Prepare grill and preheat to medium. Grill fennel, turning several times with tongs, until slightly charred and crisp-tender. Can also be done on a ridged grill panel.
If you add the mustard you would give a rating of five. Excellent with grill pork with apple sauce and a nice Riesling.
I forgot the mustard. It was to cold to use the outdoor grill so I just did this in a pan. I let the fennel marinade for a few minutes. Very nice. Made for Everyday is a Holiday Tag
Yum! The only thing I did different is leave the mustard out. Anyone who likes fennel will enjoy this!
