Grilled Fennel Bulbs




  • about 2-3 Fennel bulbs
  • olive oil
  • parmesan cheese
  • sea salt
  • lemon juice
  • vegetable oil for oiling bbq grate


  1. On grill or bbq, make sure the grate is clean. With paper towel , dip in some vegetable oil and oil the grate on the bbq or grill. Heat the grill.
  2. Wash fennel bubs and cut the stems and root, leaving only the bulb. If it’s a very young and tender fennel bulb, you can eat some of the stem. But most of the mature fennel bulbs that you buy from the market have tough, unedible stems.
  3. Put the bulbs in to about 2 in wedges. Toss  with olive oil and place on grill.
  4. Grill each side of bulb or bulb wedges for about 10-20 minutes (depending on toughness of bulb) . The fennel bulb will become soft and tender.
  5. Remove from grill, drizzle with a little more olive oil, salt, some lemon juice and sprinkle with parmesan cheese.
