Toasted fennel seeds along with dill, and thyme make a terrific crust for grouper in this recipe developed by Chef Allen Susser of Chef Allen's Restaurant, in Aventura, Florida.



  1. Toast fennel seeds in small dry skillet on medium heat 30 seconds or until aromatic.
  2. Immediately remove from skillet to avoid over-toasting.
