"It's a lot harder to get people to 'ooh' and 'aah' over beets and carrots than it is to get them to 'ooh' and 'aah' over artichokes or asparagus, and I enjoy being able to take these humble, 'lowbrow' foodstuffs up a few notches and serve them with great exuberance." -Charlie Trotter
Fennel is a perfect flavor to combine with carrots. The subtle and slightly bitter flavor of the fennel is perfectly balanced by the sweetness of the carrots. The recipe is a perfect accompaniment to a simple piece of grilled fish.
