"A countryman between two lawyers is like a fish between two cats."
I have a lot of risotto dishes on the website that are complete meals, like this one. This is a great meal that is loosely based on the Caprese salad of tomatoes, olive oil, basil and mozzarella. Those flavors go so well together and the fish really completes the dish.
In French this means "made of rags," so slicing a food into very thin strips is known as a chiffonade. Lining up the leaves of spinach and slicing across yielding long thin strips is a chiffonade. This is also done with herbs, such as basil or mint, by stacking the leaves, rolling them up in a tube and cutting across the roll into ribbons.

This will keep fairly well for about 48 hours in the refrigerator. Reheat gently.
|1 tsp||grapeseed or extra virgin olive oil|
|2 cloves||garlic (minced)|
|1 medium||onion (diced)|
|1/2 cup||arborio rice|
|fresh ground black pepper (to taste)|
|1/4 cup||white wine|
|12||grape tomatoes (halved)|
|1 ounce||goat cheese|
|8 ounces||cod or other whitefish (flaked)|
|1/2 ounce||Parmigiano-Reggiano (grated)|
|8 large||leaves fresh basil (chiffonade)|
Place the olive oil in a large skillet. Heat over medium and add the garlic. Cook gently, stirring frequently, for about one minute. Do not allow the garlic to brown.
Add the onion and cook for another 4 minutes. Stir frequently.
Add the arborio rice and stir. Cook for about 2 minutes and then add the salt and pepper.
Add the white wine and enough water to cover the rice.
Simmer on medium, partially covered for about 15 minutes. Check to see how close the rice is to being done and add more water if needed. The rice is done when it is still slightly firm but there is no grainy texture when chewed.
Just as the rice is getting done, add the tomatoes, goat cheese and fish. Add more water two tablespoons at a time if needed.
Add the Parmigiano and basil and fold together for about 30 seconds.
