    1. Bring fish stock to the boil in a saucepan over medium heat; keep warm.
    2. Heat 1 tablespoon of oil and 1 tablespoon of butter in a saucepan over medium heat; add 1/2 of the chopped onion and cook for a few minutes or until softened. Stir in rice to coat it in oil; pour in wine and simmer until all the liquid has evaporated.
    3. Add warm fish stock, one ladle at a time, mixing well after each addition and stirring until liquid is absorbed before adding another ladle of stock.
    4. While the rice cooks, heat remaining tablespoon of oil in a pan over medium heat; stir in remaining chopped onion. Add the sliced courgettes and cook over medium heat for 7 or 8 minutes, or until soft. Season with salt and break down a little with wooden spoon.
    5. Place chopped smoked salmon in a small bowl; season with lemon juice and freshly chopped dill.
    6. When the rice is cooked, add the courgettes and salmon; stir well to combine. Let stand a few minutes before serving.
