Squid and fennel

We found this recipe in Delicious magazine, and that is what it is...delicious. Simple too.
For 2 persons you need:
Squid: 6
Fennelbulb: 1
Star anise: 2
Coriander seeds: a tablespoon
Mint: 2 sprigs
Lemon: 1
Olive oil

Start with cleaning the squid: look here for a video:

Then cut  trough the sac as shown

Next step is preparing the fennel:












Remove the green top, cut in halves, remove the tough heart and finally cut both halves in 4 wedges:


Then heat some oil in a griddle pan, add star anise and coriander seeds and finally the fennel:


When nicely browned transfer them to a plate and add some more oil, lemon juice and shredded mint, to marinate for 1 hour:



Finally grill the squid in the same griddle pan, till nicely brown and soft, this will take about 5 minutes. Add the fennel to warm. Put in a nice way on plates you've warmed in the microwave (900W, 2 minutes). Enjoy!
