Riso al salto – Fried rice, Milano style

Too much leftover risotto and you are not in the mood for making arancini?
Make “riso al salto alla milanese”, a fried rice typical from Milano. My version is slightly different from the original, since I used olive oil instead of butter and added one big tomato.

Ingredients for 2 persons
2 portions of cold risotto
1 tablespoon of Parmigiano Reggiano
1 large tomato
extra-virgin olive oil for cooking

Time: 20 minutes

Let’s cook!

Mix the risotto with the Parmigiano and a drizzle of oil.

Heat a drizzle of oil in a fairly large (26 cm) nonstick pan and sear the sliced tomato.

Cover the tomatoes with the rice (that should be no higher than 1.5 cm) and cook until a nice golden crust forms

Use a plate to turn the rice and cook on the other side, until crispy.

Serve immediately, crunchy.
