Creamy Fish and Fennel Bake


Creamy, lusciousness, melting in your mouth smothered over a delicate, flaky piece of Cod complimented by a fennel bulb, very light and aromatic to the tongue.

For those that think of the big green egg as the meat pleaser, think again. With the help of a little dutch oven (I only used the lid of my dutch oven to cook this dish) This Creamy Fish and Fennel Bake tickled our tastebuds We used Cod for the creamy fish bake and being it was the first time I had actually made fennel, I was a tad hesitant as I was unsure of what it would taste like. Well, let me tell you, it was teasing to the tongue. My mouth begged for more.

The Big Green Egg handle this dish with ease and brought a bit of summer to our backyard. Give it a try, you’ll be pleasantly surprised!
