Made this with smoked river cobbler. Added some garlic and fresh dill. It's very nice - definitely more flavourful than expected, especially as I was a bit worried having never made fish risotto before. It's not mind blowing or anything which is why 4 and not 5, but it's tasty and easy enough so I'll probably make it again someday.

A firm family favourite for ages but only just registered for account! Nice and easy to cook and never any wasted.

I was unsure of what to expect when making this, but wow was I very pleasantly surprised. I added garlic, mushrooms and white wine as suggested on previous posts. It was moist and really flavoursome. Baked risotto is the way forward!

Delicious. I also added some dried dill and fresh garlic. For the creme friache I dolloped a small amount on the side instead of stirring it through with lifted the dish without overpowering it

Definitely more than the sum of its parts! I debated whether to make this or not as it sounded a bit bland, but I was wrong. We made it with a large onion between 2, some garlic, a courgette and 2 large mushrooms (added just after the onion/garlic) and a teaspoon of mustard (following reading the recommendations below) then used half low fat creme fraiche and half quark. I stirred through some coriander at the end. To be honest the parmesan was superfluous. Very tasty, very easy and will be making again.

Just made this, but with added garlic and a splash of white wine, and grana padano instead of parmesan. I'm eating it now and it's really lovely. I was a bit worried it would be far too cabbagey, but it is very yummy, and I'll be having seconds!

Made this tonight. Did not have enough smoked haddock so added cooked prawns and smoked salmon to 200grams of smoked haddock. I used half fat creme fraiche. Rice was a bit stodgy but very tasty. I also added a little smoked paprika to intensify the smoked flavours. I cooked it with the suggested sesame broccoli accompaniment (John Torrodes recipe) Absolutely gorgeous! I will definitely make this again and try different varietions. great recipe and it makes loads. Much more like a 5-6 person quantity.

This is so easy, tasty & not many calories- wins everyway! I varied it slightly by adding carrots & spinach, omitted the creme fraiche & used river cobbler. Fed more than 4. Will definitely do this again

Loved this recipe - very simple. Definitely will do again. I added 2 leeks at the same time as the cabbage and also added a glass of white wine when I added the rice.

Excellent recipe...I used a large piece of smoked cod (500g) which I oven cooked for the recommended 5 mins. Wasn't cooked through after this time but I removed the dish from the oven and left to rest for 10 mins with the lid on and it cooked through perfectly. I also substituted sweatheart for savoy cabbage and cheddar for parmesan (because I was using up what I happened to have in the fridge) and it was delicious. Will definitely cook it again and try some of the substitutions recommended by other cooks on the site
