  • 1 3/4 pints water
  • 1.1 lb fennel quartered
  • 4 bay leaves
  • 1 tsp grated orange zest
  • 3 1/4 floz orange juice
  • 1 tsp fennel seeds
  • 1 tbsp chopped fresh tarragon 1 tsp cornflour blended with a little cold water
  • rapeseed or vegetable oil spray
  • 4 1/2 oz orange peeled and quartered


  • Bring the water to the boil in a large, lidded saucepan and add the fennel and bay leaves. Reduce the heat, cover and simmer for 20 minutes, or until the fennel is tender. Drain in a colander, discarding the bay leaves, and keep warm.
  • Meanwhile, put the orange zest and juice, fennel seeds and tarragon into a small saucepan over a high heat and bring to the boil. Gradually add the cornflour mixture, stirring constantly, and cook until thickened. Remove from the heat, cover with clingfilm to prevent a skin forming and keep warm.
  • Heat a griddle pan over a high heat and spray lightly with oil. Add the fennel and cook, turning frequently, until golden brown on all sides.
  • Add the orange quarters and brown on both sides.
  • Serve the fennel and orange quarters with the sauce spooned over.
