Whiting, Orange, and Fennel Salad
Whiting, Orange, and Fennel Salad



  • 75ml white wine vinegar
  • 75g sugar
  • 1 orange, peeled and segmented, zest reserved
  • 1 fennel bulb, sliced thinly
  • 75ml olive oil
  • 1 tbsp black olives
  • 4 whiting fillets
  • Salt and pepper
  • Knob of butter
  • 1 tbsp fresh tarragon, chopped
  • Handful of fresh watercress
  • Place the sugar and vinegar in a small pan, and gently heat for 4 minutes until a syrup is formed. Chuck in the orange zest, the orange segments, the fennel, olive oil, and olives, remove from the heat and allow to cool.
  • Season the whiting fillets well, then fry in 2 tbsp of olive oil - skin side down - for 2 minutes. Turn the fillets over, add the knob of butter, and fry for a further 2-3 minutes to cook through.
  • Put the watercress and tarragon in a salad bowl, add the orange mixture, and mix well. Serve the whiting fillet on a bed of the salad. Nice!
