This easy, healthy side goes particularly well with griddled fish and meat. You can substitute some of the fennel with leeks if you like.

  • juice of 2 lemons
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 100ml water
  • coriander or parsley, chopped


Prep time: 5 min
Cooking time: 10 min
  • Step 1

    Blanch 4 whole trimmed fennels in boiling salted water for 2 minutes, then drain and refresh in cold water. Drain well, brush lightly with oil and sear on a hot griddle pan.
  • Step 2

    In a wide pan, gently heat the juice of 2 lemons, 1 tablespoon of sugar and 100ml water.

    As the fennels come off the grill, place in the warm marinade. Leave for 5 minutes, then sprinkle with chopped coriander or parsley and serve.
