Method:

I always use a nonstick ceramic pan, which is so very useful.Β  Remove and clean the garlic and spring onions and dice them.Β  Then cut the small fennel in half to remove its center and just slice it. Finally dice the apricots and get your pan ready to medium heat. Add olive or coconut oil for cooking and add first the garlic till nice and golden in color, then add the spring onionΒ for 4 mins and the fennel with apricots and sesame seeds.Β  Use a grater for lemon zest and also use its juice. Give it a nice mix and add capers, samphire and wine. After 3 min add butter, salt and pepper and cook everything till soft and the sauce has reduced.
