This is a lovely fresh bite that is super-easy to make. If you are in a hurry you can skip the fennel water cracker and use any good-quality shop-bought cracker or bread.
Both Andrea and I are avid foragers and fennel is perhaps one of the most identifiable leaves out there. As always, when foraging be aware of where you are picking to ensure there are no possible contaminants like spray or doggie doo. For those slightly less adventurous you can easily substitute the foraged fennel component of these dishes with dill from your local vege store.
I developed this recipe to use up any fish trimmings or excess fish, though it’s so good that you could just buy good-quality smoked fish specifically to make it.
We lightly cure our excess fish then smoke it before freezing it with the other ingredients in a Pacojet container. For those that do not have $10k to spend on a fancy ice-cream machine, this recipe works just as well with a good food processor and a sieve!
FENNEL WATER CRACKERS
This recipe makes enough to fill five oven trays. You can either cut the recipe down, or bake all the crackers and keep in an airtight container, or make the dough and keep it in the fridge to bake when required.
