If you are looking for a unique, rich and tasty dish, this rice with perch is what you are looking for. This risotto, of simple preparation, typical of the village of Menaggio and the nearby lake areas, contains the flavors and the tradition of Lombardy: on one hand for the presence of risotto, a true representative of the cuisine of this region, on the other for the perch of lake, breaded and fried. The perch of the lake is a widespread fish in the Lake of Como, in the Ceresio and in other lakes of the Brianza area. The perch of the lake, unlike the pink perch, is not really easy to find in all fish shops, so if you do not find this quality of fish, we recommend alternatives with soft and delicate meat. This traditional dish was prepared on feast days and today, thanks to its taste and its typicality, has reached even more important kitchens.
For 4 persons
Once the rice is ready, serve it in the dishes and pour over the melted butter used to fry the fillets. Finish the dish by placing the fried fillets on top and sprinkle with lemon and parsley.
In combination with this dish we recommend a dry Lombard white with an acidic vein, like a Franciacorta.
