Preparation method:

Peel and chop the onion and sweat them down in a large saucepan. Add the tomato purée and cook over a lively heat for about 10 minutes. Add the water, salt and chilli pepper and bring to the boil. At this stage, add the fish, previously cleaned, and simmer on a low heat for 2 hours. Once cooked, filter the stock obtained through a colander or a clean dishcloth.

For the risotto, place the rice in a large pan and cook over a moderate heat, adding the stock a little at a time. Clean, wash and chop the parsley. Add it to the rice once cooked, mix and serve. The rice should be smooth and “all’onda” (on the wave)
