   In a small saucepan place the white wine and bring it to a boil.  Add the

   heat and let it cool.  Add the Pernod and stir it in.
   
   In a medium bowl pour the wine mixture.  Add the mahi mahi and coat it with
   the sauce.  Let the fish marinate for 2 hours.
   
   In a small skillet place the olive oil and heat it on medium high until it
   is hot.  Add the julienned fennel, thyme, tomatoes, salt, and pepper. Saut‚
   the ingredients for 2 to 3 minutes, or until the fennel is tender. Set the
   mixture aside and keep it warm.
   
   In a large saucepan place the vegetable oil and heat it on high until it is
   hot.  Add the reserved fennel stems and deep-fry them for 1 to 2 minutes,
   or until they are crisp.  Drain them on paper towels, set them aside, and
   keep them warm.
   
   Grill the mahi mahi for 3 to 4 minutes on each side, or until it is just
   done.
   
   In the center of each individual serving plate place a fish fillet.  Place
   the saut‚ed fennel mixture next to the fish.  Spoon the Garlic Mayonnaise
   between the fish and the fennel mixture.  Place the deep-fried fennel on
   top of the fish for a garnish.
   
   For Garlic Mayonnaise: In a small bowl place the garlic, egg yolk, mustard,
   salt, and pepper.  Whisk the ingredients together so that they are well
   blended.
   
   While whisking constantly, slowly add the olive oil so that a mayonnaise
   consistency is achieved.
   
   Add the boiling water to the mayonnaise, and stir it in well.
   
   Strain the garlic mayonnaise and keep it warm until it is served.
