RISO AL SALTO

I’ve discovered that many people don’t know and have never eaten RISO AL SALTO (fried rice).
How is it possible? They missed out on a fantastic dish, truly mouth-watering!
I have to fix it now!
It’s really easy and I guarantee you that after tasting it you will never cook a risotto again without cooking a double or triple portion …. so as to have enough to cook RISO AL SALTO ¬†the next day …. by now I’ve come to cook it only for that! ūüôā¬†
Ok, no more talk…… you’ll find the recipe below!

Saffron risotto (it’s actually good with other risottos too), butter.

Premise: I take it for granted that you know the recipe for risotto with saffron……however, to make RISO AL SALTO it is better to use a risotto that contains Parmigiano Reggiano and saffron.

 

In a non-stick pan, heat a knob of butter, enough so that the whole bottom is covered by the melted butter, and add the rice that you have kept in the refrigerator from the day before.
Mash it well with a spatula and let it cook, always moving the pan so that it does not stick, for about ten minutes.
Grease a fairly large lid with a little butter (so the rice will slide better) and after placing it on the pan, turn them together.
Add a knob of butter back to the pan and slide the rice into it. Mash well with the spatula and cook for another 10 minutes, always moving the pan.
I generally repeat this operation a couple of times until a golden crust has formed on the rice.
To the happiness of the diners (I’ve never found one who didn’t adore it) the time has come to serve your rice!

Note: Depending on the size of the pan and the amount of rice, it will be more or less thick….. I prefer it fairly thin but…… it’s still delicious.

SPAGHETTI WITH BOTTARGA

Bottarga is one of my favorite foods. I strongly recommend, to those who have never tasted it, to remedy it immediately, it is truly one of the best foods you will ever taste.
The Smeralda mullet bottarga, which you can find at Top Of The Food, is nothing short of exceptional.
But what is mullet bottarga?
Mullet bottarga is a special product which belongs to the ancient history of Sardinia. It is said that over 3,000 years ago, Phoenician seafarers arrived on the coasts of our island, bringing with them the art of preserving in brine and seasoning sacs of mullet roe.

Today, after careful selection and highly accurate manual and visual inspection, only the very best quality roe is processed with care, one by one. Smeralda respects tradition, but also make use of modern technology to guarantee the best production process.

A really excellent bottarga  can be recognized by its colour. If it is amber with a uniform color or slight shades of it, then the product will have impeccable quality. The flavor is distinctive and enveloping on the palate, reminiscent of the sea.

The Smeralda bottarga combined with Cav. Cocco spaghetti Semola Fiore del  certainly climb on the podium of the best pasta!

You will find all ingredients  to prepare this delicious pasta at Top Of The Food St. Moritz.

 

Extra virgin olive oil (Forcella), Spaghetti semola fiore (Pastificio Cavalier Cocco), Mullet Bottarga  (Smeralda), Grated bottarga (Smeralda), a clove of garlic, salt, pepper.

In a pan heat extra virgin olive oil and a clove of garlic.
Peel off  the thin skin from the bottarga and cut it into thin slices.
Cook the spaghetti in a saucepan with abundant salted boiling water and drain when al dente.
Toss the spaghetti in the previously heated Extra Virgin oil adding the slices of bottarga.
Immediately remove from heat, serve and sprinkle with grated bottarga and pepper to taste
