A ritual for me and my mum is to pick up all of the free monthly supermarket magazines as they are always brimming with recipes and food ideas! Such a great way to spark some inspiration if you’re feeling a little flat with you meal ideas. This was one from an ASDA magazine!
I actually first made this meal for just myself and, typically, my family were leering over the pans as I was happily cooking away and then dropped the question that I hate the most… “Can I try a bit?” and I can only relate my reaction to that classic episode of Friends: “JOEY DOESN’T SHARE FOOD!!!!”.
Ingredients (Serves 2)
- 1 Shallot, finely chopped
- 1 Garlic Clove, peeled and crushed
- 1 Sprig of Thyme, leaves picked
- 100g Risotto Rice
- 50ml Dry White Wine
- 450ml Chicken Stock (adjust accordingly!)
- 50g Parmesan, finely grated (reserve half for parmesan crisp!)
- 1 tbsp Breadcrumbs (I made my own by blitzing a slice of wholemeal bread and a sprinkle of Parmesan!)
- 2 Cod Loins
- 2 Rashers of Prosciutto
- 2 Sprigs of Rosemary
- 100g Green Beans, trimmed
- Preheat oven to 160 degrees Celsius (fan oven).
- Heat Frylight in a frying pan on a medium heat, add the shallot, cover and fry for 5 mins until softened.
- Remove the lid add the garlic and thyme and cook for 2 mins.
- Add the rice and mix well.
- Pour in white wine and bubble for 30 secs.
- Add a ladleful of stock and stir until completely absorbed. Continue cooking like this, adding a ladleful at a time. Stir continuously until the rice is tender and has a creamy consistency (20-30 mins).
- Remove from the heat, stir through half the parmesan and season.
- Pour into an ovenproof dish and top with the remaining Parmesan and the breadcrumbs. Bake for 15-20 mins.
- Sprinkle remaining 0.5 of parmesan onto a baking tray and formate into 2 heaped circle (use a biscuit cutter for shaping!). Bake for 6-8 mins until golden and crisp.
- Meanwhile, wrap 1 rasher of prosciutto and a sprig of rosemary around each portion of cod.
- Heat Frylight in a frying pan over a medium heat and fry the cod for 3-4 mins on each side.
- Bring a pan of salted water to the boil, add the green beans and cook for 3 mins. Drain, season and serve!
- Assemble all of your elements and serve!
I would love to hear what you think of the recipe or if you give the recipe a go!
