I never tried making risotto but this sounds good. Maybe salmon would work with it also.

Recipe Ingredients for Tuna Risotto

14 oz low-sodium vegetable broth
1 tsp extra virgin olive oil
3 cloves garlic, chopped
1 cup brown rice
2 tsp Italian seasoning (or 1/2 tsp each dried basil, oregano, rosemary, and thyme) (I used Tastefully Simple Italian Seasoning)
2 oz grated Parmesan cheese
11 oz tuna, pouched, in water

Recipe Directions for Tuna Risotto

  1. Prepare risotto: Pour broth and 2-1/4 cups water into a 1-1/2 or 2 qt saucepan and bring to a gentle simmer over medium-low heat. (NOTE: You?ll be holding the liquid at a simmer throughout preparing the risotto) In a large nonstick skillet, heat oil for 1 minute over medium heat. Add garlic and cook for 1 minute, stirring frequently. Stir in rice, reduce heat to medium-low and cook for 3 minutes, stirring often to coat rice with oil.

  2. Carefully dip a glass or metal measuring cup into simmering stock and measure out 1/2 cup liquid. Gently pour 1/2 cup liquid into rice, being careful to avoid the rising steam. Let rice simmer for 3 minutes, stirring at least once every minute to help grains release their starches.

  3. Dip measuring cup into stock again and add 1 cup liquid to rice, stir and let simmer for 5 minutes or until rice has absorbed liquid, again stirring every minute. Repeat procedure with another 1 cup liquid. Then add only 1/2 cup liquid at a time, simmer each batch for 5 minutes and continuing to stir rice occasionally. When adding the final 1/2 cup liquid, add Italian seasoning to rice as well.

  4. Remove risotto from heat and gently stir in cheese and tuna.
