Katya - We had this tonight and it was really easy and delicious.    I didn't bother with mixing the dressing in the TMX bowl and did it by hand as that seemed easier to me.  I also cut up some new potatoes and put them in the basket and they cooked perfectly.   I had some samphire so steamed that alongside the fennel for the last few minutes. It is quite delicately flavoured which may not suit some people on here but for us it was perfect and I will definitely do it again - thanks farfallina.

passionflower - This was yummy for dinner tonight Farfallina thank you for your recipe. I did baby potatoes and green beans asIi couldn't get fennel this weekend. I loved eating the fragrant leftover nut mix as I only did 3 fillets.

You plate looks so wonderful passionflower!  ;)
I believe baby potatoes and green beans would be delicious as well, even better for who are not very fond of cooked fennel!
I am happy you enjoyed it
Thank you for the feedback
