Ingredients

  • 1 dozen very small fennel bulbs, or 4 to 6 larger bulbs, quartered
  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 3 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 6 salt-packed anchovy fillets, rinsed, drained, and chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • Salt and pepper

Directions

Bring a large pot of water to a boil and drop in the baby fennel bulbs or quartered bulbs. Return to a boil and cook 10 minutes, until the fennel is tender. Drain and set aside.

In a frying pan large enough to hold all the fennel, heat the oil over medium-low heat, and add the garlic, anchovies, and pepper flakes. Cook gently until the garlic has softened and the anchovies begin to dissolve. Add the fennel and continue cooking, stirring to coat the fennel with the oil. Season with salt and pepper and cook for an additional 5 minutes. Serve hot or at room temperature.
