Arctic Char fillets                        2 fennel bulbs
3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil            3/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper                1 orange, cut into wedges

Put oven rack in lower third of oven and preheat oven to 425°F. Cut stalks from fennel bulbs, then chop enough fronds to measure 1/4 cup. Toss fennel with oil, salt and pepper in a baking dish. Cover tightly with foil and roast 10 minutes, then remove foil and roast 5 minutes more. Meanwhile, rinse fish and pat dry. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Put fish on fennel in baking dish, spooning some of fennel over fish. Return baking dish to oven and roast, uncovered, until fish is opaque and just cooked through, 10 to 12 minutes. Sprinkle fennel fronds over fish and drizzle with olive oil. Serve with orange wedges for squeezing over fish.
