The risotto is made by frying the rice with challots & garlic when the rice is glossy add a generous splash of white wine, when that has dissolved finish the risotto with fish stock.

Just before the risotto is ready, add the turnip tops and finally a couple of tablespoons of mascarpone .

The tomatoes are covered in olive oil, ground pepper and sea salt, and are roasted in the oven for about 20 minutes.

Before serving add the fresh salmon, cut in slices.

The salmon warms of the risotto & the salty tomatoes add a nice twist to this dish.
