Coconut risotto with anchovies
I personally really love the Oriental cuisine and I like to use its influences in Western dishes. For example, this recipe is a risotto with coconut milk and anchovies that is inspired by a Malay dish called Nasi Lemak. It has strong flavors but at the same time manages to be a light and delicate dish.
- 1 coconut
Finely chop the onion and brown it in extra virgin olive oil. Now add the rice and fry for a couple of minutes. Then start adding salted water to the rice up until ¾ of the designated cooking time has passed.
In the meantime, mix the coconut milk with the anchovy oil.
Add the coconut milk to the rice for the remaining ¼ of cooking time. Take the risotto off the heat and stir with the the juice of half a lime and a few tablespoons of anchovy oil.
Serve the risotto in the coconut and complete with a Double Delicious anchovy and some lime zest.
Enjoy your meal!
