1 jar of Delicius Double Anchovies in olive oil
350 g of rice
200 ml of coconut milk
4 tablespoons of anchovy oil
Half an onion
Extra virgin olive oil
1 lime
1 litre of boiled salted water

Thinly chop the onion and make it sauté in a pan with extra virgin olive oil (thus creating the classical risotto “soffritto” preparation).
When the onion has softened add the rice and make it toast for a couple of minutes. Then start adding the boiled salted water until 3/4 of cooking time.

In the meantime put together the coconut milk with the oil from the anchovies (in the jar) and mix thoroughly.
Add the “corrected” coconut milk/oil to the rice and finish cooking. Then remove the pan from the stove and proceed in creaming the rice with the juice from half a lime and a couple tablespoons of oil.
Serve the risotto in a cut coconut and complete with a Delicius Double rolled anchovy fillet on top and a decoration of grated lime skin.
