This Exquisite Salmon Risotto Will Blow Your Mind Tips for cooking salmon risotto

If you want your risotto to be perfect you have to stir it constantly once you wet the rice with the broth. The particularity of risotto is that it comes out creamy and this is achieved by making the rice grains rub together and release the starch, which will bind the cooking liquid.

1. Clean the salmon loins of skin and bones and cut them into cubes. Peel and chop the leek and garlic cloves, wash and drain the rice, and heat the broth in a saucepan, although you can also do it in the microwave.

2. Put a large pan on the fire with a little olive oil, and sauté the leek over medium heat until tender. Then add the garlic and sauté for a couple of minutes more. Add the rice and toast until the grains start to become transparent, then pour the wine and let the rice absorb it.

3. Add the peas and the spices and start adding the hot broth glass by glass, pour the first one and let it cook until the rice has absorbed it while stirring with a wooden spoon or spatula assiduously so that it acquires the creamy texture.
Repeat the operation with the rest of the broth, do not add the next glass until the previous one has been absorbed, and do not stop stirring the rice.
Before pouring the last glass of broth, add the salmon cubes, they do not need much cooking, and this way we avoid it getting too dry. After adding all the broth and before the rice has absorbed all the broth, add the Parmesan cheese and mix well to butter the rice.
