Ingredients

1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1/2 cup diced carrot
1/4 cup finely chopped shallot
2 teaspoons finely chopped garlic
4-1/2 cups chicken broth
2 8-ounce bottles clam juice
1/2 cup white wine
2 tablespoons heavy or whipping cream
1/2 to 1 teaspoon Thai red curry paste
2 cups arborio or medium-grain rice
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon grated lime peel, divided
4 teaspoons ground coriander
1-1/2 teaspoons salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
8 6-ounce striped bass fillets with skin
3 teaspoons vegetable oil, divided
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
Sauteed greens (optional)


For risotto, heat 1 tablespoon oil in a 3-quart heavy-bottomed saucepan. Add carrot, shallot and garlic and cook until vegetables soften. Combine broth, clam juice and wine in a glass measure (or a large bowl). Pour or ladle 1-1/2 cups broth mixture into a 2-cup glass measure. Add cream and curry paste; set aside.


2. Add remaining 5-1/2 cups broth mixture to vegetables. Bring to a boil; stir in rice and 1/2 teaspoon salt. Reduce heat to medium; cover and cook 20 minutes, until liquid is absorbed and rice is tender with a slight bite. Stir in 1/4 teaspoon of the lime peel.


3. Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Combine coriander, 1 1/2 teaspoons salt and pepper in a cup. Sprinkle over the skinless side of fish fillets. Heat 1-1/2 teaspoons oil in a 12-inch skillet over high heat. Add 4 fillets skin side down. Immediately place the bottom of a 9-inch pie plate on the fish and weight with a heavy can. (This will prevent the fish from curling.) Cook 2 to 3 minutes until skin is browned. Remove plate and can. Transfer fish with a spatula, skin side down, to bottom of a broiler pan. Repeat. Bake 5 to 6 minutes, until fish flakes easily with a fork in center of fillets. Sprinkle with lime juice.


4. Microwave reserved 1-1/2 cups broth mixture on High 2 to 4 minutes until very hot; stir to dissolve curry paste. Add remaining 1/4 teaspoon lime peel.


5. Divide risotto among 8 serving plates. Arrange fish, skin side up, on top of rice; pour reserved hot broth around risotto. Sprinkle with cilantro and serve with sauteed greens, if desired
