A recipe from my supermarket.

Top Review by TasteTester

I liked the combination of the mild-tasting tilapia with the salty capers and pungent anise flavor of the fennel. No bland taste here! I made it just as directed, except that I cooked the fennel and onions for 4 minutes as they were still very crunchy after 1 minute. My husband felt the taste of the fennel was very strong, so next time I'll use half the amount of fennel to give the sauce a milder taste, but I liked it just the way it was. I served this with broccoli and wild rice and it made a great presentation -- such a colorful plate of food!
