What You'll Need

2 3/4 cups Swanson® Vegetable Broth (Regular or Certified Organic)
1 ounce dried morel mushrooms (about 1 cup)
6 tablespoons olive oil
1 medium onion, finely chopped (about 1/2 cup)
1/4 cup rice wine vinegar
1/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon lavender honey
Freshly ground black pepper
1 sprig fresh thyme leaves
1 clove garlic, minced
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup finely grated Parmesan cheese
4 fresh halibut steaks or halibut fillets (about 1 1/2 pounds)
1/2 cup uncooked Arborio rice
2 cups Swanson® Chicken Broth (Regular, Natural Goodness® or Certified Organic)
1/2 cup fresh sweet peas or English peas
1/4 cup coarsely chopped fresh morel mushrooms
1/4 cup (1/2 stick) unsalted butter
1 tablespoon chopped fresh chives

How to Make It

  • 1

    Heat 1 cup vegetable broth in a 1-quart saucepan over medium-high heat to a boil.  Add half the dried mushrooms.  Remove the saucepan from the heat and let stand for 15 minutes or until the mushrooms are rehydrated.  Drain and coarsely chop the mushrooms.

  • 2

    Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a 1-quart saucepan over medium heat.  Add half the onion and cook until golden brown, stirring occasionally.  Stir in the rehydrated mushrooms, vinegar, sugar and honey and heat to a boil.  Cook for 10 minutes or until the liquid is evaporated.  Remove the saucepan from the heat and let cool to room temperature.  Season with the black pepper.  Set the morel confiture aside.

  • 3

    Heat the remaining vegetable broth in a 1-quart saucepan over medium-high heat to a boil.  Add the remaining dried mushrooms, the thyme sprig and garlic.  Remove the saucepan from the heat and let stand for 10 minutes.  Strain the morel tea through a double layer of cheesecloth or thick paper towels into a medium bowl.  Discard the solids.  Set the morel tea aside.

  • 4

    Stir the flour and 1/4 cup cheese on a plate.  Coat the fish with the flour mixture.

  • 5

    Heat 4 tablespoons oil in a 12-inch skillet over medium-high heat.  Add the fish and cook for 15 minutes or until it's golden brown on both sides and flakes easily when tested with a fork.  Remove the fish from the skillet and keep warm.

  • 6

    Heat the remaining oil in a 2-quart saucepan over medium heat.  Add the remaining onion and cook until tender, stirring occasionally.

  • 7

    Add the rice to the saucepan and cook and stir for 2 minutes.  Add 1/2 cup chicken broth and cook and stir until it's absorbed.  Add the remaining chicken broth, 1/2 cup at a time, stirring until the broth is absorbed before adding more.  Stir in the peas, fresh mushrooms, butter, remaining cheese and chives in with the last broth addition.

  • 8

    Place about 1/2 cup risotto into each of 4 shallow bowls.  Top each with 1 piece fish, about 1 tablespoon morel confiture and about 1/3 cup morel tea.
