Smoked Alaria and Asparagus Risotto

Our Alaria (Alaria esculenta) has been gently smoked at 25 degrees for 4 days, to enhance the flavour profile, while still maintaining its nutritional properties. The gentle smoky flavour of this seaweed compliments the clean-tasting asparagus to complete 

Alaria thrives in the cold, wavy waters of Ireland’s Atlantic shores where it absorbs health-giving nutrients from the pristine surrounding waters. Not only is it high in iodine, Alaria is also rich in minerals such as calcium, iron and zinc.

Our range of organic risotto mixes is ideal for those who want a convenient healthy meal, without compromising on taste.

Preparation

Prepare 800ml of your favourite stock. Heat 2-3 tablespoons of olive oil in a wide-based pot. Add the contents of the pack, and toast for 2-3 minutes on a high heat. Add 1/4 of the stock to the pan and stir vigorously until absorbed. Repeat this step ladle by ladle with the remaining stock, stirring until all the liquid has been absorbed.

Serving suggestion: Squeeze some fresh lemon juice into your finished dish to elevate the flavour.
