“Risotto, what a faff eh? Well, while a full on properly made risotto is a delicious thing and often worth the effort, in today’s time-poor midweek lifestyle I find something simpler can tick the indulgent risotto box without costing you the whole evening – you won’t even need to make a stock – how cool is that? The use of jasmine rice adds a more subtle texture and lighter note and allows you to throw the dish together as and when once the rice is sorted. I often keep a few packs of smoked trout in the freezer as it’s handy, defrosts quickly and takes up very little space – ideal for a get out of jail on a mid-week supper.
What, is not to like about that?” – Tim Maddams
