Fennel is crunchy and slightly sweet, adding a refreshing contribution to the ever popular Mediterranean cuisine. It is readily available and at its best from autumn through to early spring. Fennel's aromatic taste is unique, strikingly reminiscent of licorice and aniseed. It's texture is similar to that of celery - crunchy and striated. The stalks are topped with feathery green leaves near which flowers grow and produce fennel seeds. The bulb, stalk, leaves and seeds are all edible.
It's very versatile, you can have it in different ways: sautéed fennel and onions make a wonderful side dish. Combine sliced fennel with avocados, and oranges for a delightful salad. Braised fennel is a wonderful complement to scallops. Top thinly sliced fennel with plain yogurt and mint leaves. Fennel is a match made in heaven when served with salmon.
Next time you are looking for a new way to adorn your sandwiches, consider adding sliced fennel in addition to the traditional toppings of lettuce and tomato.
