Halibut with Braised Fennel


This recipe is beyond fast. It will take you about 20 minutes total, so super great for when you are on the run! I love all things Fennel, you can do so many creative things with it. I personally love fennel tea and practically have it every day! This is a great way to use fennel in a dish, or just slice it up and try it out raw. So perfect for a summer salad!

2. Add sliced fennel, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/8 teaspoon pepper; cover and cook, stirring occasionally for 5 minutes.
