Ingredients

  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 fennel bulb, trimmed and diced
  • 1 echalion shallot, finely sliced
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • 150g orzo pasta
  • 100ml white wine
  • 450ml fish or vegetable stock, made using 1 stock pot or cube
  • 100g baby leaf spinach
  • 200g raw seafood selection, defrosted
  • zest of 1 lemon, juice of ½ and wedges to serve
  • ½ x 20g pack dill, chopped (reserve some fronds for garnish)

Step by step

  1. Heat the oil in a deep, lidded frying pan or large saucepan. Add the fennel (reserve any fronds to garnish) and the shallot with a pinch of salt and cook over a medium-low heat, covered, for 5 minutes until softened. Stir in the garlic and orzo and continue to cook, stirring, for a further 1-2 minutes.
  2. Pour in the wine, bubble to reduce by two-thirds, then pour in the stock. Bring to the boil then lower the heat and simmer, covered, for 15 minutes. Stir occasionally.
  3. After 15 minutes, add the spinach, followed by the seafood on top. Re-cover and cook for 2 minutes until the spinach has wilted, then remove the lid, stir to combine and cook for a further 3 minutes or until everything is cooked through and the orzo has a risotto-like consistency.
  4. Add the lemon zest and juice, the chopped dill and some seasoning to taste.
  5. Serve in shallow bowls, scattered with the reserved dill and fennel fronds, with lemon wedges for squeezing.
