Prep time 15
Servings 1

Ingredients
½ fennel per person
A handful of roughly chopped basil
3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1 tbsp lemon juice
1/3 cup parmesan shavings
¼ cup roasted pine nuts
Kosher salt, freshly ground pepper

Instructions
1. Roast the pine nuts in a dry skillet. Try not to surf Facebook while roasting, they burn so fast!
2. Slice the fennel very thin with a mandolin. If you don’t have a mandolin, slice it very thinly with a super sharp knife.
3. Drizzle with olive oil and lemon juice and toss to coat. Let it sit for 10 minutes to marinate. Add a little more olive oil and lemon if fennel is humid enough. Adjust the acidity if desired.
4. Add chopped basil, pine nuts and Parmesan shavings and toss well.
