Step one: 
Put salt and pepper on salmon. Heat up pan and place inside. Cook for about one minute on each side until the salmon turns into a golden color. 

Step two: 
Add the star anise and garlic to pan. Add onion as well and sautee for a bit. Then add the orange juice and raise the flame and place a lid over it. Let the dish cook for five to six minutes, so the flavors can become infused. 

Step three:
Remove salmon from pan and place on plate. Raise the heat on the pan again and add fennel and coconut cream and let flavors infuse. Depending on taste, add some more salt. Turn off heat and remove fennel and put on plate next to salmon. Then add the orange zest mixture and add the rest of the coconut mixture over the salmon and fennel.
