Fresh Caught Snapper with Risotto

Our good friend Kevin went fishing and always shares his catch with us. This time it was a lovely snapper filet. We had a big lunch so I wanted a lighter evening meal. I put half a cup of arborio rice in a frying pan with half a cup of water. Cover, bring to a boil and simmer till water is absorbed. Add a teaspoon of chicken stock powder and more water and this time stir the rice while it's cooking. Keep adding water and stirring till the rice is cooked and forms a starchy slurry in the pan. Add half a cup of grated parmesan cheese and stir it in. Add a tablespoon of butter and stir it in. 

The peas were frozen and done in the microwave, finished with butter, salt and pepper. The fish was salted, seasoned with Cajun spice and fried. Fresh lemon juice was sprinkled on the fish after plating. 

The risotto made the meal. Fresh fish can't be beat but the risotto was so good it made everything on the plate taste better.

Kevin is going fishing today so we might have trout for dinner.
