How to make Squid and Rocket Leaves Risotto
Step 1 Saute onion and garlic
To prepare this enticing dish, first, heat butter in a pan over medium flame. Once the butter melts, add in chopped onions and minced garlic cloves. Saute for a minute or two. Ensure that the onions do not burn.
Step 2 Add rice and white wine
Once the onions and garlic are cooked, add the risotto arborio rice. Toss the rice in the pan and add the white wine. Reduce the heat, and simmer until all the wine has been absorbed.
Step 3 Add fish stock
In a separate pot add fish stock and bring it to a boil. Once the stock boils, add it, little at a time, into the arborio rice and white wine mix. Ensure that the stock completely absorbs before adding the next batch. Cook the mix well for at least 16-18 minutes.
Step 4 Toss squid and add in rice mix
In a pan kept over medium flame, heat olive oil. To the heated oil add the cleaned, round cut squid. Toss the squid for 2-3 minutes and then add in the rice mix.
Step 5 Garnish the risotto and serve
Finally, top the dish with melted butter, shredded rocket leaves and parsley. Pour olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Serve the risotto hot.
