A lemon and herb buttery risotto using bulgur instead of rice, served with fish and toasted flaked almonds.

No Fish option - replacement is chicken breast fillet.

Gluten-friendly option: burgul is replaced with quinoa.
1. Boil 1L water in the kettle. Heat a frypan over medium-high heat with 2 tbsp butter and 1 tbsp oil. Slice shallot and cook for 2 minutes. Add bulgur and stock cube. Pour in 2 cups of boiled water to simmer until just evaporated. Repeat until bulgur is soft.

2. Finely chop broccoli (see notes) and slice sugar snap peas. Chop dill fronds.

3. Add almonds to a dry pan over medium heat to toast until golden. Remove and reserve pan.

4. Coat fish with lemon zest, 1 tbsp oil, salt and pepper. Cook in pan over medium-high heat for 3-4 minutes on each side, or until cooked through.

5. Stir broccoli and peas into bulgur. Cook for 2 minutes. Add 1/2 lemon juice and 1/2 dill (reserve some for garnish) stir until combined. Season with salt and pepper.

6. Divide risotto between bowls. Top with fish, almonds, remaining dill and serve with lemon wedges.

Chop broccoli until it resembles a chunky crumb. You can also do this in a food processor.
