    1. Heat the oil in a large pan. Add onion, garlic, celery and pepper and cook for 3 minutes, while stirring. Add rice, mushrooms, stock, wine and seasoning. Mix well. Bring to a boil and cook gently for 25 to 30 minutes, until almost all the liquid has been absorbed stirring occasionally.
    2. Meanwhile cook the haddock, drain, then skin and flake. Stir peas into risotto and cook for a further 5 to 10 minutes, stirring frequently. Stir in fish and herbs and serve immediately with Parmesan cheese sprinkled on top.


    Use herbs of your choice for this tasty risotto. Thyme, sage or rosemary all work well, or try a mixture of all.

    Fabulous! I used fennel seeds and dried tarragon instead of the fresh herbs and it was absolutely gorgeous!! Will definitely make it again! Since the above review I have made it twice more. I tried different herbs, but have gone back to fennel seeds and tarragon, as they make a real difference! Also this last time I poached the smoked haddock in milk and used the flavoured milk as part of the stock required. It gave it a much better flavour!  -  23 Jan 2017


    I love mushroom risotto but never tried it with fish... Sadly I won't be combining the two again either, for me mushrooms and smoked haddock just don't mix. The recipe was easy to follow and I think had I just used one or the other of those ingredients it would have turned out much better for my personal taste.  -  28 Jun 2016
