Preparation time: 10 minutes
Cooking time: 30 minutes
Ingredients (serves 2):

    2 cod fillets
    Half a clove of fennel
    3 tablespoons thick crème fraîche
    10g butter
    1 tablespoon of anisette
    ½ teaspoon aniseed
    ½ teaspoon cumin seeds
    salt and freshly-ground pepper


Chop the fennel into tiny pieces and cook it in butter over a very light heat.
Add the anisette, aniseed, salt, pepper and cumin, and turn the heat up to reduce the liquid by roughly a half.
Add the crème fraîche, heat to boiling point and then remove from the heat.
Season and pour into a blender.
Blend until you achieve a smooth, creamy mixture.
Meanwhile, heat a little water in a steamer and as soon as it starts bubbling, put the fish in the steamer and cook for 5 minutes.
Put the fish straight onto the plates and add the sauce.
Serve with steamed potatoes.
