    Wonderful lemon flavour! I used brown basmati rice and did not add the salt as I thought there was enough in the Parmesan cheese. I used shredded Parmesan. Just made half a recipe for the two of us and we enjoyed every mouthful. It had a wonderful rissoto rice consistancy and went very well with our baked halibut. Thanks for posting Annelies, I will be making this one again!!
