Orange & Fennel Roasted Fish
Serves: 6
  • 2 fennel bulbs (about 1 pound each), including the fronds (see Note)
  • 1 tablespoon cooking oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon fresh-ground black pepper
  • ¼ cup fresh orange juice
  • 1 teaspoon grated orange zest
  • ¼ teaspoon fennel seeds
  • 2 pounds cod fillets, cut to make 6 pieces
  1. Heat the oven to 450°.
  2. Cut off the tops of the fennel bulbs and chop the leafy fronds. Cut each bulb into 8 wedges.
  3. In a large roasting pan, toss the fennel wedges with the oil and ¼ teaspoon each of the salt and pepper. Spread the fennel in an even layer and roast for 25 minutes. Stir the fennel and rotate the pan so the vegetables cook evenly. Roast 15 minutes longer.
  4. Meanwhile, combine the orange juice, orange zest, fennel seeds, and the remaining ¾ teaspoon salt and ¼ teaspoon pepper in a medium size glass or stainless steel bowl. Add the cod and marinate while the fennel roasts.
  5. Remove the pan from the oven and top the fennel with the cod and its marinade. Roast until the cod is just done, about 10 minutes for ¾-inch-thick fillets.
