We had a quick dinner. I worked late, and prepared a yummy baked fennel dish that Brad could pop into the oven for a half an hour. I had fresh shrimp cleaned and ready to go. He did the rest.
3 large fennel stalks, (white part cut off core and sliced)
splash of olive oil
1/2 c. cream
3 T. sour cream
1/2 c. grated parmesan or Pecorino Romano cheese
Saute fennel in olive oil until tender and slightly browned on each side. Transfer to baking dish. Combine cream, sour cream and half of cheese. Pour over fennel. Top with remaining cheese and bake at 400 for 35 minutes until fennel is tender.
Brad made the shrimp. I saw oil, garlic, and a splash of white wine go into the pan.
