risotto au saumon et roquettes

Enjoying the city under the sun and going around all day ended couple of times to forget to do the groceries. Results: your fridge is quite empty and you have 2 men to feed. That can be quite a deal specially when you have to compose with couple of ingredients in the rush under the eyes of a little boy with a powerfull voice and big lachrymal glands!


However I guessed that the combination of smoked salmon and arugola would be good together, but actually it turned out to be excellent. Salmon perfume the rice while arugola bring a fresh and little spicy touch to the dish. Arugola is just a great ingredient in the risotto, it helps it to be more digest. I already knew it from the green risotto (that I still have to post, there is just the kids version for now), but I appreciated again here.
