"A great way to prepare fennel! Serve hot as a side dish, or cool and serve as a salad."

  • Prep: 15 mins
  • Cook: 10 mins


2 fennel bulbs

2 tablespoons olive oil, divided

1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper

1/4 teaspoon salt

1 tablespoon chopped fresh basil

1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley

1 lemon, juiced

1 teaspoon lemon zest

1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

1 pinch dried thyme

2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese

Add all ingredients to list


1Preheat an outdoor grill for high heat and lightly oil the grate.

2Slice a very thin layer from the bottom of each fennel bulb using a vegetable peeler or paring knife, leaving the core in place to help hold bulb intact. Remove fennel stalks, reserving fronds. Slice bulbs vertically into 1/4-inch slices. Brush slices with 1 tablespoon olive oil and sprinkle with ground black pepper and salt on each side.

3Grill fennel slices until charred, about 5 minutes per side; transfer to serving platter.

4Whisk remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil, basil, parsley, lemon juice, lemon zest, freshly ground black pepper, thyme, and reserved fennel fronds together in a bowl. Sprinkle Parmesan cheese and drizzle lemon mixture over fennel.
