Smoked Salmon Risotto
photo by Lille
- Ready In:
- 6 cups vegetable stock or 6 cups chicken broth
- 3 tablespoons butter
- 1 small onion (or use any combination of leeks, shallots, and onions that pleases you)
- 1 1⁄2 cups arborio rice
- 1⁄2 cup dry white wine
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon dill weed (I used dried dill, and probably more than a teaspoon)
- 8 ounces smoked salmon
- 1 cup parmesan cheese, grated & of highest possible quality
- 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.

<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=http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/projects/200_PACpic.jpg border=0 alt=Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket /> <br /> <br /><img src=http://i42.photobucket.com/albums/e347/Saturn6666/KiwiDutch/3chefstag1.jpg alt= /> <br /> <br /><img src=http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y53/DUCHESS13/Zaar%20World%20Tour%203/ZWT3-Participation.gif alt= /> <br /> <br /><img src=http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/Adopted1smp.jpg border=0 alt=Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket /> <br /><img src=http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/smPACp.jpg border=0 alt=Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket /> <br /><img src=http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/PAC08Main.jpg border=0 alt=Photobucket /></p>
