salmon with fennel and lemon risotto

  • 1 bulb fennel, chopped
  • 50g butter, chopped 
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil 
  • 1 brown onion, chopped 
  • 1 ½ cup (300g) aborio rice 
  • 4 cloves garlic, crushed 
  • ½ cup (125ml) dry white wine 
  • 1.5 litres hot fish stock 
  • 1 tablespoon finely grated lemon rind 
  • ¼ cup chopped dill 
  • 1 ½ cup (120g) finely grated parmesan 
  • 2 x 200g salmon fillets, pin-boned+ and sliced 
  • olive oil, extra, for brushing
  1. Trim the fronds from the fennel, set aside and chop remaining fennel. Place the butter and oil in a large heavy-based saucepan over medium heat. 
  2. Add the fennel and onion and cook for 2–5 minutes or until softened. Add the rice and garlic stir for 1 minute or until rice is well coated. Add the wine and cook for 1 minute or until evaporated. 
  3. Gradually add the stock, 1 cup at a time, stirring continuously, for 25–30 minutes or until absorbed and rice is al dente. Stir through lemon rind, dill and cheese. 
  4. Heat a large non-stick frying pan over high heat. Brush salmon with the extra oil and cook, skin-side down, for 2–3 minutes or until crispy. Turn and cook for a further 2–3 minute or until salmon is cooked to your liking. Serve with risotto. Serves 4.

+ Get your fishmonger to pin-bone the fish for you.
