Salmon Mushroom Risotto
A simple, hearty recipe featuring wild Alaskan salmon, mushrooms, asparagus, and Parmesan

Alaskan Salmon Mushroom Risotto

Today’s recipe comes to us courtesy of the Alaska Seafood Marketing Institute.

It’s not low-carb, but eating is all about moderation. We wouldn’t recommend eating white rice on a daily basis, but brown Arborio rice simply doesn’t produce the creamy result of a white Arborio rice.

You can certainly make your own using white arborio rice, but this recipe calls for packaged risottos, there are some good-quality brands in supermarkets or online.

Alaskan Salmon Mushroom Risotto
Prep time 10 minutes; Cook time 20 minutes
Serves 6 (2 cups each)

Ingredients

  • 2 packages (8 oz. each) risotto with mushrooms
  • 1 cup fresh mushrooms (button, crimini or porcini), cut into bite-size pieces
  • 12 oz Organic Chicken Bone Broth
  • 4 Wild Pacific King Salmon (6 oz each), thawed
  • Pepper, to taste
  • 10 to 12 oz fresh asparagus stalks (sliced into 2-inch pieces) and/or peas, blanched
  • 1/4 cup fresh grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 cup chopped basil leaves
Directions

  1. Prepare risotto according to package directions adding mushrooms, but cooking just three-quarters of total time, about 15 to 18 minutes.
  2. While risotto is cooking, bring chicken broth to a simmer in a large (12-inch) nonstick pan or stockpot.
  3. Rinse thawed salmon under cold water.
  4. Turn off heat and gently add salmon to the chicken broth, skin side down (if it’s skin-on). Return to a simmer, cover pan and cook 2 minutes. Turn off heat and let the salmon rest in liquid for 5 minutes, until opaque throughout. Remove salmon from broth, season with pepper and cool slightly.
  5. Add asparagus/peas and Parmesan to partially cooked risotto; finish cooking risotto.
  6. Break salmon into large chunks (removing skin, if any). Gently fold salmon and basil into risotto.
