Smoked Salmon Risotto

"I've finally been introduced to risotto, and am obsessed with it ... and I had some smoked salmon that needed to be used up. I found this recipe at (it's important to give credit where credit is due!). Boy, did this hit the spot .... this was so simple, and so very, very delicious."

Ready In:




  • Dice the onion(s) into small dice. Saute in 1 butter until golden.
  • Add rice and stir thoroughly to coat; cook over medium-high heat for about two minutes.
  • Add the wine, salt and dill to the rice/onion mixture.
  • Heat vegetable stock in a separate pot. Using a large soup ladle, add one ladleful to the rice at a time, stirring constantly in between additions. (This is somewhere between half a cup and a cup of stock.) Wait until the liquid is absorbed before adding the next ladleful. The whole process of adding liquid should take anywhere from 20-30 minutes.
  • Take half of the smoked salmon and chop it fine. Add to remaining butter and cream thoroughly. Take the other half of the smoked salmon and coarsely chop it.
  • About two minutes before the rice has finished cooking, add the butter/salmon mixture and the coarsely chopped salmon. Stir for another two minutes, until thoroughly incorporated and creamy. Add the parmesan and stir for another minute or two.

  1. A very tasty risotto. I cheated and made it in my rice cooker and it worked well. I served the parmesan on the side. I served it with the Just Celery Salad


<p>My husband and I live in Cambridge MA with our dog Archie. <br /> <br />I used to be a mediocre cook, with little interest in cooking ... then I joined Weight Watchers in Oct. 2006. I finally realized that to maintain my weight, I needed to find lots of extremely yummy, healthy foods that I enjoyed eating -- and the best way to do that is to learn to cook, and to learn to enjoy cooking. This web site has been 95% responsible for getting me there! <br /> <br />As of Oct. 2007, I am a lifetime member of Weight Watchers, having lost 70 pounds and weighing less than I've ever weighed as an adult. I owe a lot of it to the recipes I've found here! <br /> <br />Re: rating recipes -- I only give out five and four stars, and very occasionally three stars. I don't see any point in giving lower scores; I can't be sure a recipe has turned out badly because of something I've done. Besides, even if I don't like it, the next person might -- and if they see a one-star review, they'll never bother to try it. So I review the ones I've loved, and don't say anything about the ones that didn't work for me. <br /> <br />Hooray for vegetables! <br /> <br />. <br /> <br /> <br /><img src= border=0 alt=Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket /> <br /> <br /><img src= alt= /> <br /> <br /><img src= alt= /> <br /> <br /><img src= border=0 alt=Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket /> <br /><img src= border=0 alt=Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket /> <br /><img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket /></p>
