Before you start

A slow cooker is needed to make this recipe.

Method

  1. Heat the oil in a pan over medium-high heat. Add the shallot and cucumber, then sauté 2-3 min, with occasional stirring. Lower the heat, cover and cook 15 min. Over high heat, stir in the rice grains, then sauté 1 min with stirring. Transfer to the ceramic cooking pot, then pour in the hot broth and the wine.
  2. Cover the slow cooker with the lid and cook on 'high' for 45 min.
  3. Add the salmon pieces and season with salt and pepper. Cover and cook for a further 15 min, or until the rice is tender and the salmon just cooked.
  4. Switch off the slow cooker and let the risotto stand for 5 min. Stir in the chopped dill and green onion. Mix lightly, adjust the seasoning and serve.
