For 4 people

Preparation time: 10 minutes

Cooking time: 25 minutes

 

INGREDIENTS:

• 200 g smoked Adour salmon

• 20 cl of white wine

• 3 organic chicken stock cubes diluted in 1.5 liters of water

• 450 g of round rice called arborio

• 1 onion

• 2 garlic cloves

• 50 g of mascarpone

• 50 g of grated Parmesan cheese

• A lemon peel

• 2 tablespoons of olive oil

• Salt and pepper from the mill

 

PREPARATION:

1. Chop the onion, peel the garlic cloves and fry for 5 minutes in a drizzle of olive oil over low heat.

2. Add the rice and simmer for a few minutes. The round rice grains must be translucent.

3. Stir in the white wine and allow it to evaporate completely.

4. Pour 2 ladles of hot chicken stock and stir gently. When all the stock is absorbed, add the rest gradually, ladle after ladle, while stirring regularly. Repeat this process until the rice is cooked. For this, it must be melting outside and slightly crunchy inside.

6. Sprinkle the rice with smoked salmon, cut into thin slices, and add the lemon peel.
