    Zesty Salmon & Parsley Risotto Recipe

    This is such a simple and tasty dish. If you've had a stressful day, then this is a lovely relaxing dish to cook - just stand and stir as the rice turns creamy. If you like, add a splash of white wine to the rice and allow to bubble before you start adding the stock.

    • Preparation time: 10 minutes
    • Cooking time: 35 minutes
    • Total time: 45 minutes 45 minutes

    Serves: 4


    1.5 litres hot vegetable stock
    265g pack Waitrose Duchy Organic 2 Scottish Salmon Fillets
    1 tbsp olive oil
    1 onion, finely chopped
    350g Riso Gallo Organic Arborio Risotto Rice
    1 clove garlic, finely chopped
    25g pack flat-leaf parsley, leaves and stalks chopped
    Grated lemon zest and juice of 1 lemon
    Knob of Waitrose Duchy Organic English Salted Butter
    2 tbsp finely grated Parmigiano Reggiano, plus extra to serve 


    1. Pour the stock into a wide saucepan and add in the salmon fillets. Simmer gently for 8–10 minutes until cooked through, then lift out the fish and transfer to a plate, reserving the stock in the pan.

    2. Heat the olive oil in a separate large saucepan and cook the onion for 5 minutes until softened. Stir in the rice and garlic and cook for
    1 minute. Ladle in a third of the reserved stock and cook, stirring until it absorbs the liquid. Continue to cook and add the remaining stock, stirring regularly until the stock has been absorbed and the rice is tender — this should take about 20 minutes.

    3. Remove from the heat and stir in the parsley leaves and stalks, the lemon zest and juice, butter and cheese. Break the salmon into large flakes and carefully fold through the risotto. Divide between bowls and serve with extra cheese and a good grinding of black pepper.
