barbecu-instructions-fennel

FENNEL VEGETABLE PREPARATION

Rinse your bulb under cold running water;
Cut off the stalks and the feathery fronds from the bulb;
Trim off a very thin slice from the base of the bulb and remove any of the outer tough layers if they appear to be blemished. You can use a peeler to remove any spots;
Place the bulb upright and simply slice it lengthwise. When grilling, it is important to leave the inner core in place as this will prevent the fennel bulb from falling apart. Slice bulb through base into ¼-inch- thick pieces.

FENNEL GRILLING DIRECTIONS

Grill for about 3-5 minutes of each side or until lightly charred. The fennel cooking time will vary as it depends on the size of your fennel bulb. The end result should be a soft and tender bulb.

Remove from the grill and squirt with the lemon juice of 1/2 a lemon.

Season with sea salt and a grinding of pepper to taste. Add a sprinkle of Italian parsley.

Grill, turning once, until streaked with dark grill marks and quite soft, 7 to 9 minutes.
