Smoked River Cobbler in Fennel and Garlic Sauce

As I've said before, my all time favorite fish is River Cobbler (Pangasius) and my all time favorite River Cobbler is smoked.

When I fancy something really nice for dinner but I don't want to spend lots of time preparing, I make this because using dried herbs makes it so much quicker and easier and just as tasty.
I have perfected this sauce over the years and when you make it you will find that fennel seeds really do add a wonderful flavour to any sauce.

While that’s cooking put the fennel seeds, garlic and parsley in a pestle and mortar and grind them up, it doesn't have to be too much just enough to release the flavour of the fennel.
