I don't want to take Omega 3 supplements. I want to eat this.

No, Paper Ballerinas isn't sponsored by Regal Salmon (though if they were to offer I wouldn't say no. I would happily feature a Regal Smoked Salmon recipe every week, and accept multiple free packets of salmon). Mum and I made this while I was at home and I couldn't get enough of it. We didn't have leeks at the time so substituted with baby spinach. mmmmmmmmmmm.......

Regal Wood Roasted Salmon and Leek Risotto

Ingredients (Serves: 4)
1/4 cup olive oil
2 small leeks or 300 g baby leeks, washed and finely chopped
3 cloves garlic, crushed
1 1/2 cups arborio rice
3/4 cup dry white wine
3 to 4 cups fish or vegetable stock, heated
200g Regal Wood Roasted Salmon, roughly chopped
salt and freshly ground black pepper
3 tablespoons sour cream
2 teaspoons lemon zest

1. Heat the olive oil in a large heavy - based saucepan. Cook the leeks and garlic over medium heat for 3 to 4 minutes. Add the rice and cook, stirring, for a further minute. Add the wine and cook, stirring until it has all been absorbed. Add the stock to the rice half a cup at a time, until the stock is slowly absorbed after each addition. Stir continuously.
2. When the rice is tender and creamy, stir in the salmon. Season with salt and pepper, add the sour cream and stir gently. Cover the pan and leave for one minute.
3. Garnish with lemon zest and serve immediately.

yum that sounds delicious. I love Salmon.

I take Omega 3 supplements - they are great. They help my hair and nails grow so much better.
