300g natural smoked haddock
250g Arborio rice
1/2 ltr fresh fish stock
1/2 ltr fresh chicken stock
75ml white wine
80g Mascarpone
100g Parmesan
1 shallot
1 garlic clove
30g butter
10g flat leaf parsley
20 peeled shallots


  • Peel and chop the shallot and garlic and sweat in a pan with the butter, but don’t colour. Add the rice to the pan with the onions and seal for about 30 seconds over a low heat.
  • Add the white wine and add the stocks in stages to the rice and bring to the boil, then simmer for about 12 minutes, stirring a few times. After 10 minutes add the flaked smoked haddock.
  • Grate the Parmesan cheese and chop up the flat leaf parsley.
  • Heat a frying pan until very hot and drizzle with olive oil and butter. Add the peeled baby onions and sauté, then place into the oven to cook.
  • Mix the Mascarpone and Parmesan into the risotto with the parsley and season well.


  • To serve, spoon the risotto on to the centre of the plate, top with the roasted shallots and serve immediately.
