- Trim and cut the fennel into quarters.
- Melt butter in an ovenproof pan and add the zest of one orange, place fennel in pan, season with salt and pepper and sauté over a moderate heat until golden brown on all sides.
- Cover with a piece of baking paper and place in a moderate oven for 45 minutes or until very tender. Pour over the juice of one orange and serve.
