Fennel Magic

If you're impressed with fennel pollen seasoning but not the steep price, my affordable blend mimics it nicely for the home chef. Sold in my Etsy store, ArtisanalSpice, you can purchase a sample or a tin. You'll find recipes and ideas for using fennel pollen all over the net, and here is one of my own "go-to" recipes, simple, dependable and delicious! Fennel is most sublime paired with seafood, poultry, pork, and sausages.

Grilled Herbed Fish
One 6-8 oz steaks or fillets per serving (I suggest wild-caught salmon, Alaskan halibut, Alaskan cod, or striped bass)

For each 8-ounce fish fillet or steak:
Rub with 1/2 tsp olive oil
Lightly season with small amount of salt, pepper and a pinch of sugar
Dust with 1/2 tsp Savory Spice Fennel Magic Seasoning

Grill over medium-hot flame for 8-9 minutes per inch of thickness. Fish should be just past rare when removed from the grill, as it will continue to cook a bit more. (If necessary, keep fish on the frill for one additional minute.)
