  1. Put the potatoes into a pan of boiling salted water and cook for 6–7 minutes, then drain and return to the pan to dry out. Place the butter and olive oil in a large frying pan over high heat and add the potatoes, along with the onions and a sprinkle of salt. Cook until golden and cooked through, turning them regularly.
  2. Combine the fennel, oranges, avocado and rocket in a large serving bowl.

Gently toss through the potatoes and onions, then serve immediately.
