  1. Bring a pan of water to the boil then add the fennel slices for 2-3 mins until just tender. Drain well and toss with reserved fennel fronds, dill, lemon zest and juice, 2 tsp olive oil and seasoning.

  2. Brush the slices of bread with remaining oil. Place in a hot griddle pan (or under a grill) and toast on both sides until lightly charred. Rub one side of each slice with the garlic, then divide the fennel salad between them. Top with the prawns, then the rocket and serve.

Great dish and very simple, if using a griddle get the brochette on alot earlier than the recipe says.

This was yummy, I initially followed the recipe but have made it plenty of times since and just served as a salad with extra rocket rather than fiddling about with bruschetta.

These were great, I have never boiled fennel before and was slightly curious, but I loved the overall flavour of the dish and would definitely do again.
