Orange juice and zest and citrusy coriander seeds underscore the sweetness of tender braised fennel. The beauty of this dish is that it’s delicious hot, warm, or at room temperature.
Make Ahead Tips
The fennel may be made 2 days ahead of serving.
Uncover and cool to room temperature before refrigerating it (covered).
Let the fennel come to room temperature before serving. Or reheat it, covered, in a 325°F oven.

We thought this recipe was gorgeous - my meat-eating husband put it alongside chicken breast with tarragon, I put it with prawn & courgette brochettes, but it would have been so much nicer as the main! It is going into our Christmas recipe list as well as the day-to-day one. Thank you!
Love the delicate orange flavoring. Easy and pairs well with beef, mushrooms, red wine, and tangy radicchio cauliflower salad also in this issue.
This was a nice pairing to the holiday dinner. Delicate flavor, easy to prepare. I used a lemon zester for the orange, which added nice color to the final dish.
