  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 3 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 1 large leek, white part only, thinly sliced and rinsed
  • 2 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
  • 4 Club Des Millionnaires anchovy fillets
  • 2 tbsp capers
  • 1 cup frozen green peas, thawed
  • 1 ½ cups arborio rice
  • ½ cup dry white wine
  • 6 cups chicken broth
  • 1 lemon, zest and juice (roughly 4 tbsp juice)
  • 1 cup parmesan, (½ grated, ½ shaved)
  • 3 cans (80g) Ocean’s Solid Light Tuna in Basil-Infused Oil, not drained

  1. Heat the olive oil and 1 tbsp of butter in a large pot over medium-low heat.
  2. Add the leek and saute for 3-4 minutes or until fragrant.
  3. Add the garlic, anchovy, capers and green peas. Season with salt and pepper. Cook for 4-5 minutes or until fragrant.
  4. Add the rice to the pot and stir to combine. Cook for 2 minutes or until the rice turns translucent. Turn the heat to medium-high, add the wine and bring to a gentle simmer. Stir frequently until all of the wine is absorbed.
