This makes a tasty side dish for mussels or grilled shrimp. You can eat the thinly sliced pieces of lemon, which become as caramelized and soft as the fennel.
Make Ahead Tips
The fennel will keep in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
Serve as an appetizer: Layer on toasted bread, along with a few very thin slices of red onion that have been soaked in vinegar and drained. Drizzle with more olive oil.
Add to a sandwich: Use it instead of sliced tomato to top roast beef or turkey in sandwiches.
Stir into pasta: Toss with hot penne, a bit of extra-virgin olive oil, some pasta cooking water, a sprinkle of red pepper flakes, and Parmigiano-Reggiano.

Fantastic. My grown children wished I had found this long ago. Wonderful as a cool addition to lunch or warm as a fish side dish.
