Method

  1. Piadina: mix flour and salt in a bowl and make a well in the centre.
  2. Mix water and oil in a glass, then pour it in the well and mix it with the flour, kneading everything by hand.
  3. Transfer the dough to a work surface and knead until you get a smooth and compact dough.
  4. Form a ball, cover with a damp towel and let it rest for half an hour.
  5. Divide the ball in two and put aside to rest again for 3 more hours.
  6. In the meantime, prepare the stuffing: cut the fennels with a mandoline and put them in a large pan with a teaspoon of olive oil, salt and milk.
  7. Turn on the heat and cook covered for about 15 minutes.
  8. Turn off the heat, if necessary season with salt and pepper and puree everything with an immersion blender until the cream is smooth but not too liquid.
  9. Finally, add butter and pecorino cheese, mix well and put aside.
  10. Prepare the salad: peel the orange and cut it into very thin slices. Cut the fennel into 4 wedges and slice it with the mandoline.
  11. Chop the almonds and put them into a bowl, together with the sliced fennel.
  12. Season with oil, salt and pink pepper and mix.
  13. Keep in a cold place, covered with cling film until use.
  14. Make two thin piadina breads by rolling the dough with a rolling pin.
  15. Cook the 'piadine' on a crepes-plate (or in a large non-stick skillet), each side for 2 minutes, pricking with a fork.
  16. With a large cookie cutter, cut 2 hearts from each piadina.
  17. Spread two of the four hearts with a tbsp. of fennel cream, top with some salmon cut into small pieces and cover with the other two hearts.
  18. Arrange on serving plates and serve with the fennel and orange salad.
