This is a dish that is incredibly simple, yet will impress everyone (including yourself) by its depth of flavor and "yummy" factor. Its success is dependent on little touches like plumping the raisins in fresh orange juice, incorporating chopped fennel fronds as well as roasted wedges of the bulb itself, and using lots of chopped shallot to add sweetness and bite to a basic sherry vinaigrette.
