Salmon Risotto

Risotto is such a comforting meal and this one feels so fresh! It’s crazy quick to make and tasted so good!


3 shallots, finely sliced

300g arborio rice

2 x garlic cloves, crushed

Large handful of parsley, finely chopped

3 tbsp wine

100ml single cream 

1 lemon,  zest and juice

200-250g smoked salmon, sliced in strips

1-1.5 litres of hot water or stock



Add a little oil to a pan and gently fry the shallots and garlic. When soft, add half the lemon zest, half the chopped parsley, the wine and the rice. Stir to coat the rice. 

Add the stock or water, one ladle at a time and as the rice soaks it up add the next. Keep doing this until the rice has softened – taste test occasionally! Add more boiling water if 1-1.5 litres is not enough. Season well with some lovely black pepper. 

Remove from the heat and stir in the cream, remaining lemon zest, the lemon juice and the smoked salmon strips. 

Finally, stir in the remaining parsley.


Love, A x
