Saffron risotto with smoked salmon, mango and lemon zest.

DI Chiara Maci | 8 Feb 2018


A recipe of Milanese inspiration for today. With some changes.

Risotto served lukewarm, cooked with saffron flavoured water instead of broth, cubed fresh mango  with a scent of my secret ingredient, lemon, and smoked salmon morsels.

Everything finished with freshly grated black pepper.

An explosion of flavours.

Very easy and delicious.



200g acquerello rice



100g norwegian smoked salmon
