1/2 a bulb of fennel, sliced very thinly on a mandoline
2 Oranges, 1 segmented, 1 zest & juice
50ml/2fl oz sherry vinegar
175ml/6fl oz extra virgin olive oil
salt & freshly ground black pepper
1 tbsp chopped fresh tarragon
2 Aubergines, cut into wedges
4-5 tbsp vegetable oil
2 large naan breads, cut into 6 discs 10cm/4in in diameter
small bunch of fresh watercress leaves
1. In a bowl, mix together the fennel slices, orange segments, orange juice, orange zest, sherry vinegar and olive oil until well combined. Season, to taste, with salt and freshly ground black pepper, then add the chopped tarragon and stir well.
2. Rub the aubergine wedges all over with 2-3 tablespoons of the vegetable oil. Heat a griddle pan (I used my George Foreman grill) over a medium heat. When the pan is hot, add the aubergine wedges and grill for about 1-1 1/2 minutes on each side, or until golden-brown griddle marks appear on both sides and the Aubergine is tender. Set aside on a warm plate.
3. Brush the naan bread discs all over with the remaining vegetable oil. Add the naan bread to the griddle pan the aubergine is tender. Set aside on a warm plate.
4. To serve, place one griddled naan bread disc in the middle of each of six serving plates. Place a pinch of watercress leaves into the centre of each naan bread, then a portion of aubergine wedges on top. Spoon over some of the sherry vinegar dressing. Arrange small piles of the marinated fennel and orange around the naan bread and drizzlr over the remaining dressing.
