Today a wonderful risotto artichokes and bottarga: Sardinia on the table. How can you resist lying on the benches in front of artichokes markets? Roman violets, artichokes Sicilian, the Sardinian spiny. I can not do, and then I leave the recipe, very easy, one of my favorite dishes with new photographs just taken. A dainty dish, creamy and tangy. The risotto with artichokes for me deserves a place of honor among the risotto 'homemade', suitable for a quick dinner. And the mullet roe makes it even more special. If you love risotto also I suggest you another plate of season, the RISOTTO WITH MUSHROOMS , also in version VIDEO RECIPE on my YouTube Channel.
The trick chef
If you want, potete aggiungere a questo risotto anche un pizzico di zafferano sciolto nel brodo caldo. Per renderlo più originale, al posto del prezzemolo tritato, I used parsley powder, made by simply letting dry the parsley in the oven at 100 degrees for 10-12 minutes. Se volete potete fala anche voi facilmente in casa: parsley powder is beautiful to look at and gives the dish a vegetable twist, almost of chlorophyll.
If you can not find fresh mullet you can use the dry, already grated and, If you do not find any kind, you can enjoy a simple, awesome, creamy risotto. I also recommend you have a look at all my RECIPES WITH ARTICHOKES. Have a good day!
