In Celery Crunch Fennel Fillet With Ginger On Bed Of Arugula » Simple And Healthy Recipe! ✅

Celery? Really? Beyond its essential role in mixing a Bloody Mary, serving as a stick in a crudité dish, or adding crunch to tuna, celery is the one vegetable I typically exclude from recipes.

In contrast, fennel, a licorice-flavored cousin of celery, is one of my favorite foods. I never thought of putting the two together. Until now. So here they are in a natural pairing with accents of ginger and anise. In this recipe, I added a pinch of fennel pollen (my secret ingredient for summer salads and dips) combined with the natural sweetness of Meyer lemon juice and the earthy, nutty flavors of asparagus, arugula, and pistachio. Results? Well, try for yourself. -Vivian Henoch
