    FlemishMinx's Note:

    Lemony, but not over-powering. In my opinion, the perfect accompaniment to simply-prepared grilled fish, especially salmon.

    1. 1
      Bring the broth to a simmer in a saucepan over medium heat; reduce heat to low and cover to keep warm.
    2. 2
      Melt 1 1/2 TBS butter with the olive oil in a large heavy sauce pan over medium heat.
    3. 3
      Add shallots to this and saute until tender, (3-5 minutes).
    4. 4
      Add rice and stir for 1 minute.
    5. 5
      Add wine and stir until evaporated, about 30 seconds.
    6. 6
      Add 1 1/2 cups hot broth, and simmer until absorbed, stirring frequently to prevent sticking.
    7. 7
      Ladle in the remaining broth, 1/2 cup at a time, allowing broth to be absorbed before adding more, and stirring frequently until rice is creamy and tender.
    8. 8
      You will use all the broth, and the key is to do this simmering slowly; it will take about 35-40 minutes.
    9. 9
      When all the broth has been absorbed, stir in the cheese and remaining 2 TBS butter.
    10. 10
      Stir in the parsley, lemon juice, and zest.
    11. 11
      Season to taste with salt and pepper, and serve.

      Wonderful risotto with a very subtle lemon flavour. Served it with crab cakes. The only adjustment I made was to cut the recipe in half for two of us. Thanks for a lovely comforting dish.
