The least you do with fish is best, but sometimes it is also nice to play around… and jazz up a fish dish. We got inspired by a bowl of the sweetest looking Mandarines… Citrus fruits are great accompaniment to fish: Lemons, Limes, & Oranges. In this dish, the fragrant Fennel flavours are  balancing the sweetness of the mandarine, with a little help from a dash of Fresh Cream… One to try.
