1/2 tbsp butter, unsalted 7 g
1/2 tbsp olive oil 8 mL
3/4 cup arborio rice 150 g

Before you start

A pressure-cooker will reduce the risotto cooking time to 7 min.

Method

  1. Prepare the leeks: Cut off the dark green tops and finely chop the white and pale-green parts . Heat the broth in a small saucepan on the stove or in a microwave oven. Keep it warm while cooking the risotto (which will take about 20 min).
  2. Melt the oil and butter in a saucepan. Add the leek then sauté 2-3 min, until it becomes translucent. Add the rice and toast the grains 1-2 min (until translucent), with constant stirring. Add the the wine and continue to stir until evaporated, about 2 min.
  3. Cook the risotto until the rice is creamy but still al dente, about 20 min.
  4. Stir in the salmon and the herbs, then let the risotto stand for 2 min. Season with salt (not much if the broth is salty) and pepper to taste, then serve.
