Zander Risotto

In this episode, Mika is cooking Zander and firstly heads out on his boat to check his net trap. He finds a small Bream which he'll use later to catch Crayfish, before getting a nice 1kg Zander. After filleting the Zander, Mika cuts it into strips and fries them in some butter until crispy so they don't break up too much in the risotto. He has previously prepared a stock using the head and bones of the Zander, and uses this in his risotto gradually adding it to the risotto rice. Once the risotto is underway he gradually adds some chopped tomatoes and parmesan before adding the fish. Towards the end he adds some finely chopped garlic and parsley and hey presto, his Zander Risottto is ready.
