Mackerel with Barley Risotto
Maybe it should be called barleyotto as there is no rice in it.
I didn't follow a recipe.
I mug whole grain barley
4 mugs water
1 onion chopped
2 large cloves of garlic
tomato puree 1 dessert spoon
passata or a tin of tomatoes puréed
soy sauce, a good glug
chilli as much or as little as you like.
Smoked paprika as above
2 mugs of chopped veg I used pepper, carrot, French beans peas and sweetcorn
Fry the onion and garlic in some olive oil.
Add the barley and chilli and continue to fry for a minute or two.
Add the water, cover and simmer for one hour.
Add the other ingredients and simmer for another half hour stirring every so often and adding more liquid if needed.
Serve with fried mackerel.
