Fresh Salmon Risotto

Risotto is one of my favourite dishes to make. I’m sure you’ll love this fresh version with salmon and mint!

SalmonRisotto1

Ingredients:
– Risotto rice
– Vegetable broth
– Light veggies of choice (I used canned peas and baby carrots)
– Salmon filet
– Fresh mint
– Red onion (diced)
– Lemon juice
– Herb butter (or regular)

In a pot, heat up some butter and sautée the onion. Add the risotto rice, and stir until it becomes clear. When the rice turns clear, add the vegetable broth. Bring to a boil. Keep stirring the risotto regularly to prevent burning.
Meanwhile, in another pan, bake the salmon on some herb butter.
Keep stirring and boiling the risotto until it becomes slimey. When it’s almost done, add the vegetables. Turn off the heat, and add the lemon juice. Tear or cut op the mint leaves and add to the risotto.
You can serve the salmon whole, or shred it up and stir into the risotto (I prefer it that way, saves you the usage of a knife 😉 )

I absolutely love how fresh, light and delicious this dish is, while still filling you up nicely. I really hope you try it out and love it as much as I do!

Below is an exerpt from one of my vlogs of me cooking this dish, for those of you that prefer a visual walk-through. Please excuse the unprofessionalness of this clip, I literally took it straight out of a vlog!

Challenged By Melaniie

Melanie Murphy, also known as Melaniie, is an amazingly beautiful Irish girl who I absolutely love. She makes really entertaining videos about all sorts of things, including battling acne, weight loss and daily vlogs. You guys should check out her channel, I guarantee you will fall in love with her personality.

Anyway, back to topic. Her and I got together to do this little collaboration. I sent her five challenges to do, and she sent me hers. She had me doing some things that were, well… slightly out of my comfort zone. I had an absolute blast filming this, I really hope you enjoy watching it!

Getting Ready for the Elf Fantasy Fair

Gah! Elf Fantasy Fair! If you’ve been following me for a while you’ll know how much I love and look forward to this event every year. I haven’t missed one single fair since 2007!
I think they renamed the event to Elfia this year, but I’m not exactly sure… Vague stuff going on there! However it’s called, it’s an amazing event centered around people with a love for fantasy. The most amazing thing about this festival is the incredibly warm and tolerant atmosphere; you can come here and feel beautiful and loved no matter who you are. I think that’s a wonderful thing and am all up for it!
A huge part of Elfia are the costumes. Some people put serious effort into it and come out in the craziest, most awesome costumes. I’m not that hard-core, but I cannot deny the love I’ve had for dressing up since I was a child. In this video I’m going to show you my favourite fantasy festival outfit, and how I do my hair and makeup.

Vlogging Every Day in April!

For the past two years, April has been a special month for me. I get to take you with me in my day-to-day life, show you what it’s like, share my favourite recipes, and chat with you whenever I want!

This year I’m going a bit more hard core- I’m going to put one vlog up every day, instead of doing compilations of two or more days. I’m so excited!
I have all my April vlogs in this playlist. Just click it to enjoy all of them!
