Obviously, following this recipe, you can also simply prepared like a risotto with radicchio and reserve the tartare for an important occasion, like Christmas or New Year menu. And if you love the radicchio, have a look at all my RECIPES WITH CHICORY and all my RECIPES FOR RICE. First of all, to learn more about radicchio (you will find at the market from December), I recommend watching the VIDEO the production of radicchio I shot last year. I love this precious vegetable and I enjoy experimenting with different dishes (you have already seen the jam radicchio and blood orange?).
Among my recipes based on radicchio could certainly not miss a risotto, you know that I love them, and since that is a tasty risotto with radicchio and very simple, I wanted to give him a little more sprint combining it with a salmon tartare perfumed with orange and thyme. Obviously, The salmon must be torn down: down the recipe I'll explain why and how. If you like risotto, you should give this risotto with radicchio PGI a chance and experience it for the holidays, along with some other fanciful idea that you can find in my CHRISTMAS MENU.

For the risotto with radicchio, Prosecco and salmon tartare, wash carefully the late radicchio of Treviso PgI under running water, dry well and cut finely with a knife. Chop the shallot. Sauté the shallot in a little olive oil and a little water, over low heat, until it is completely wilted.
Toast the rice in a risotto pan, low and wide (preferably copper), very low heat, and no other fat, then add the shallot previously prepared, mix and blend with the Prosecco DOCG. When alcohol has evaporated, combine the rice half the chopped radicchio and start cooking gradually adding the hot broth.
While the risotto is cooking radicchio, chopping knife salmon (already shot down) to prepare the tartare. Place the salmon in a bowl, season with very little extra virgin olive oil, the zest of half an orange organic, orange juice to taste, a pinch of fine salt, freshly ground black pepper and a few thyme leaves.
When the risotto with radicchio will be almost ready, on the wave, add the rest of radicchio (this way you'll still feel a little bit of texture in the dish) and add salt. Stir risotto with radicchio and Prosecco DOCG with butter and spread it on individual plates. Garnish each plate with the salmon tartare and orange and serve immediately. Bon appétit!
