  • 6 T butter
  • ¾ cup olive oil
  • 3 bulbs fennel, sliced into 5 pieces
  • 10 cloves garlic, peeled and mashed
  • 1 lemon, cut into wedges
  • sea salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste

Cooking Instructions

Preheat the oven to 180°C. Heat the butter and olive oil in a large cast-iron pan. Arrange the fennel, garlic and lemon in the pan, then cover tightly with foil and a lid. Cook over a gentle heat for 20 minutes, then place in the oven and cook for 30 minutes.

Remove the foil and lid. The fennel should have a charred base and a soft, caramelised texture.
