Saffron Salmon Risotto blends a plethora of flavors together into a sublime dish. Decadent and delicious, use this one to impress all your friends!
The idea for this risotto came to me a few years ago when I was still living in Bologna. I wanted to combine the classic tradition of risotto with something different. I ended up using both meat and fish (which in Italy is not very common).
The result was excellent. Every time I prepare it, it is a success. Both my Italian friends and friends from other countries enjoy my Saffron Salmon Risotto. Crispy bacon goes well with the softness of the salmon and the sweetness of the pepper; saffron completes the whole and allows the risotto to become creamy.
Born and raised in Bologna, Italy (hometown of lasagna and tortellini!), I grew up under the table of my grandmother helping her making fresh pasta for our Sunday feasts with the family. My passion for food stems from my curiosity, which has led me to travel around almost all continents (I still miss Oceania, but I hope to fill that gap soon!). During my trips I discovered the power of food. In my blog philosokitchen.com I write my recipes and my experiences around the world.
