    Karen Elizabeth's Note:

    An unusual, delicately flavoured, fish risotto. The trick to risotto, is allowing the rice to completely absorb each addition of stock. from Kitchen Classics : The Italian Kitchen

      Cooked this tonight for dinner. I used homemade stock, made from yabbies. The fish was Barramundi. Total cooking time was more like 1 hour but worth the effort. This was the best meal IVe cooked in months. Highly recommended.
