For the risotto: -

  • Low calorie cooking oil spray
  • 1 small onion finely chopped.
  • 350 g Arborio rice or similar
  • 175 ml dry white wine
  • 600 ml hot vegetable stock
  • 120 g frozen peas
  • 1 tbsp chopped flat leaf parsley.
  • 5 tbsp light soft fat cream cheese
  • Freshly ground salt and pepper

For the salmon: -

  • 240 g skinless salmon fillets
  • 450 ml hot vegetable stock


  • Spray the bottom of a large casserole pot with the low-calorie cooking oil spray about 5 times. Turn the heat on high and then when the oil starts to bubble turn the heat down and add the onion and sauté, stirring for about 2 - 3 minutes until the onion has softened.
  • Add the rice, stir for a further minute then add the wine, turn up the heat and reduce it until most of the liquid has been absorbed by the rice.
  • Add stock and reduce the heat to low and cook for 15 - 20 minutes until the rice is just tender and the liquid absorbed. Add more stock if too dry. Turn off heat and stir in the frozen peas.
  • Whilst the rice is cooking place the salmon fillets in a pan with the stock, bring to the boil then turn down to simmer for about 5 minutes. Once cooked remove the salmon from stock and break into pieces.
  • Stir the salmon, chopped parsley and cream cheese into the risotto. Season to taste and serve.
