Probably too late for this...fennel can be substituted for texture wise, but not taste wise. If she doesn't like licorice, she won't like any taste substitue for fennel.

nope, not too late. i seem to plan about 4 dinners every day for just the 2 of us, and end up taking out or making something completely different.
haven't gotten around to the fish market to pick up the snappers, but it's on my to do list, eventually, maybe. lol.

my wife says she doesn't like fennel, but that doesn't mean she really dislikes it because she may not have ever had it. but, if she really doesn't like it, and i ignore her and make it anyway, she will make her own dinner and i don't like leftover fish. phew.

soooooo, i think i'll try fennel in 2 smal snappers, and either celery (she's not a big fan of cooked celery either) or leeks, like kansasgirl suggested. i'll post my results, and thanks for everyones suggestions.

Could very well be. I know that the star anise in Chinese 5-spice powder, when used properly, can make the meal. When a bit too much is used, it can ruin it.

Im definately too late, but just in case, I was thinking maybe bok choy as a sub for fennel. Same kind of texture, however it doesnt offer much in theway of flavor, but most fish taste really good with the addition of soy sauce.
