Tarragon is an excellent pairing with both peas and salmon, making this creamy rice Italian risotto a simple and healthy dish to cook for the family.

Ingredients

  • 5 cups chicken stock
  • 1 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 2 cups Arborio risotto rice

Pour stock into a medium saucepan. Bring to a slow simmer on medium. Keep warm.

In a large heavy-based saucepan, heat oil on medium. Saute onion 3-4 mins, until tender. Add rice, stirring 1 min, to coat well in oil.

Mix in wine, cook 1 min until absorbed. Add hot stock, 1 cup at a time, stirring until liquid is absorbed and rice is tender, 15-20 mins. Stir peas through.
