Drizzle fish with a little olive oil and season with salt and pepper.

Heat a grill pan until hot and sear fish on both sides for about 3 to 4 minutes.

Place in the oven and cook for 10 to 12 minutes, or until the fish is cooked through.

Heat a little olive oil in a pan and gently fry fennel until just beginning to colour.
