The risotto is made by frying the rice with challots & garlic when the rice is glossy add a generous splash of white wine, when that has dissolved finish the risotto with fish stock.

Just before the risotto is ready, add the turnip tops and finally a couple of tablespoons of mascarpone .

The tomatoes are covered in olive oil, ground pepper and sea salt, and are roasted in the oven for about 20 minutes.

Before serving add the fresh salmon, cut in slices.

The salmon warms of the risotto & the salty tomatoes add a nice twist to this dish.

Fresh Pesto

*** update : visit this post at my moved blog : HERE ***

I’m not a person that has to make everything from scratch, of course when I bake delicious things it has to be….

my opinion if you buy a box and just add water, why bother at all.

But when I made a pasta pesto the other day, I felt I had to and every time I do make it I promise myself, that I never buy a jar again.

The taste is so much better, especially me being a garlic freak (if it says one, I add two maybe three)

I picked up the recipe from this site.

Little bonus, these wonderful pictures, which made the whole process take three times longer…
