Martha Stewart Living, December 2003
- Prep Time 5 minutes
- Total Time 50 minutes
- Serves 4
- 2 bulbs fennel, trimmed (1 1/2 pounds)
- 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
- 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
- 1 1/2 cups freshly squeezed orange juice (about 3 oranges)
- Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper
- 1/2 cup dry white wine
- With a large knife, cut each fennel bulb lengthwise into four slices. In a large skillet over medium heat, heat butter and oil until sizzling. Lay fennel slices in skillet; cook, turning once, until browned, about 5 minutes per side.
- Pour orange juice over fennel; season with salt and pepper. Bring mixture to a boil, then reduce to a simmer. Cook until fennel is tender, about 15 minutes. Add wine, and continue cooking until fennel is very tender and sauce has thickened, about 10 minutes more. Season with salt and pepper, as desired, and serve warm.
