Grilled fennel and onions

Yield: 1 servings

Measure Ingredient
Fennel
Onions
Bamboo skewers
Olive oil
Coarse salt
Freshly ground pepper

Grilling lends a unique flavor to vegetables like onions or fennel, but it can also prove frustrating when the heat of the coals forces the rings or the layers apart. There is, however, a simple solution to keep them from falling through the grill's rack and tumbling into the fire. After cutting fennel in half lengthwise, thread it crosswise with a bamboo skewer soaked in water. Cut onions crosswise into thick slices, and skewer them the same way. Soaking skewers in water prevents them from burning; the skewers themselves make it easier to turn vegetables over while they're cooking.

Try brushing the vegetables with a bit of olive oil and sprinkling each side with some coarse salt and freshly ground pepper, grilling until tender. Sweet onions, such as Vidalia variety, taste especially good when cooked on the grill, and fennel's anise flavor becomes more subtle when roasted above the coals.
