Smoked Haddock & Leek Risotto

Haddock and Leek Risotto recipe

Here’s a simple recipe for a warming and creamy risotto, that you can make in half an hour. The recipe uses smoked haddock, but if you prefer you could use a different type of flakey fish, or even chicken. If you like button mushrooms, you could add some of those too!

Serves 4

  • 1 ¾pts fish or chicken stock
  • 700g smoked haddock fillet
  • 1 tbsp sunflower oil
  • 50g butter
  • 1 onion, peeled and finely chopped
  • 2 whites of leeks, trimmed and sliced
  • 320g Riso Gallo Carnaroli Risotto Rice
  • 1 bay leaf
  • wineglass dry white wine
  • 2 tbsp double cream (optional)
  • 1 tbsp fresh parsley, finely chopped
  • salt and freshly ground white pepper

Heat up the stock in a saucepan or microwave. Place the haddock in a pan, cover with boiling water and simmer for around 5 minutes, then take off the heat. Leave to cool.

Heat the oil and butter in a pan and fry the onion and leek over a gentle heat to soften, but not brown. Add Riso Gallo Carnaroli Risotto Rice and a bay leaf and stir to coat in the mix. Pour over the wine and cook, stirring until absorbed.

Gradually add the stock a ladle at a time, stirring. Only add more stock when the previous ladleful has been absorbed. Continue until almost all the stock is absorbed, and the rice is tender, but still with a bite. (Stir in cream if your using any).

Flake the haddock and stir into the risotto with the parsley. Season with salt and freshly ground white pepper. Serve.
