"Fennel is a wonderful vegetable that is often overlooked. This recipe gives it an extra flavour boost. Do not overcook it, it should still be crisp. Save a frond or two for garnish"

Made this for someone I cook for; and, it was fantastic. Simple and flavorful. I did add a couple small sprigs of thyme as it cooked, but otherwise made it as is. Nice and golden brown. I apologize for no pictures; but, I rarely take pictures of dishes when I cook for others. But trust me, it comes out perfect. A definite 'must make' recipe. And yes, fennel is often overlooked, but shouldn't be. And, for those who say they don't like fresh fennel; they really need to try is roasted or baked. Once it is cooked, it takes on a completely different flavor. DELISH !
