Ingredients :

  • 6.25 oz of fish stock (homemade or store bought)
  • 1.4 oz of butter
  • 1 large onion, finely chopped
  • 1.5 cups of arborio rice
  • 1/2 cup of white wine

  • 1 large carrot, finely chopped

  • black mussels

Instructions :

  1. Heat 1 oz of the butter in a large saucepan. Add the carrots, tomatoes, bay leaf and parsley. Bring to the boil and cook for about 5 minutes or until the vegetables are soft. Add the fish, mussels and prawns and bring back to the boil.
  2. Simmer for 10 minutes, then add the rice to the pan and stir gently fro 2 minutes to coat the grains. Add the wine and fish stock. Stir and allow for most of the liquid to evaporate.
  3. Add the remaining fish stock , a little but at a time to the rice mixture . The amount of stock added should just cover the rice. Allow the rice to absorb the liquid before more is added. It will take about 20-25 minutes to cook.
