Portly Cooks | Sea Bass with Saffron and Chorizo Risotto

Sea Bass with Chorizo and Saffron Risotto

This is a nice an easy fish dish to make you feel fancy for your mid-week dinner.

  • 1x Sea Bass Fillet
  • 1/3 Cup Risotto Rice
  • Thumb size piece of Chorizo
  • Saffron (optional)
  • 1x Chicken Oxo Cube
  • 50g Samphire

Wash the rice thoroughly and then add to a saucepan. Crumble the chicken stock over the top and add the saffron of you’re using it. Add two third cups of water to the rice and give it a good mix. Bring the water to the boil and then turn down to a slow simmer for 10 minutes.

While the rice cooks, cut the chorizo into chunks and gently fry in a small saucepan. Leave to one side to allow all the flavoursome oils to come out of the chorizo as it rests.  Pan fry the sea bass for about 3 minutes either side.

Once the rice is done, cover and leave to rest.  As the sea bass finishes off, microwave the samphire in some boiling water for 2 minutes. Stir the chorizo into the rice, and serve with the samphire and bass.
