· Make sure stock is hot.
· Place haddock in a pan and cover with boiling water. Simmer for around 5 minutes, then take off heat. Leave to cool.
· Heat oil and butter in a pan and fry onion and leek over gentle heat to soften but not brown. Add Riso Gallo Carnaroli Risotto Rice and bay leaf and stir to coat in the mix. Pour over wine and cook, stirring until absorbed.
· Gradually add stock a ladle at a time, stirring. Only add more stock when the previous ladleful has been absorbed. Continue until almost all stock is absorbed, and rice is tender, but still with a bite. (Stir in cream if using).
· Flake haddock and stir into risotto with the parsley. Season with salt and freshly ground white pepper. Serve immediately.
