Fish and red wine is for many a no go at first sight, the presented dish shows that this combination can taste quite fantastic. With the red wine for risotto cooking a high-quality wine is worthwhile, the bottle should cost between 7 and 15 Euro, so that the red wine risotto really becomes tasty. The preparation of the orange filets is explained in the video, the risotto preparation and the pike-perch fry as well. The video is built in here on the site in the form of a playlist and you can watch it comfortably in one piece.

1. Red Wine Risotto
I cook my red wine risotto on the basis of onion cubes, diced soup vegetables, olive oil and butter, risotto rice, red wine and broth. Towards the end of the cooking time I add parmesan, butter and cold olive oil to make a creamy risotto. If you don’t have much time, you can also leave out the diced soup vegetables, I like to add them for taste reasons. In the video I show the preparation step by step.
2. Video Preparing Red Wine Risotto
In the cooking video I show the preparation in three parts in detail!
3. Prepare Pike-Perch Fillet
You can buy the pike-perch fillets either fresh or frozen. The higher or thicker the fillets are, the better. When the fillets are frozen, let them defrost in cold water for about 30 minutes to an hour. The bones of zander must be carefully pulled with pliers, as zander bones have barbs. You should again scale the skin, move the back of a knife from the end of the tail (slender part of the fillet) of a small knife against the direction of growth to the broad part of the fillet forward and remove the remaining scales with it.
4. Fry Pike-Perch Fillet until crispy
The trick with the fried pike-perch fillet with skin is to fry the fish fillet as long as possible on the skin side. I show this in the third video with a stainless steel pan and some flour. With this method the skin side of the fish fillet is put into the flour, then fried with oil on the skin side in a floured state. The fish should be seasoned with salt and pepper, you can do this shortly before frying, or during frying when the fillets are already in the pan. Another variation of pike-perch fillets with skin to roast works in the coated pan. You can then save yourself the “turn pike-perch in flour”. Please put the dried fish fillet directly into the heated pan with the skin side facing down, first spread a little oil in the pan.
With both methods (frying fish fillet with flour or frying without flour) you let the pike-perch fry almost the whole time on the skin side. Just before serving, the crispy fried pike-perch fillet is briefly turned once and then perfectly fried on the risotto.
5. Prepare Red Wine Risotto in Thermomix
For this dish, the Thermomix offers quite a work relief. You can prepare the risotto completely in the Thermomix and in the meantime you can concentrate on the orange fillets and the pike-perch roast. Put the chopped vegetables in the mixing bowl and chop the onions and root vegetables 15 seconds/level 5. The vegetables should be chopped really small, you can use the spatula as an aid. Then add the risotto rice, butter and olive oil, sweat for 8 minutes/120°C/left run. Then remove everything with a spatula, add all the broth and the red wine. Now cook the risotto for 18 minutes/100°C/left turn. Note the information on the packaging on the risotto rice at the time of cooking. Try the rice after 18 minutes and cook for 2-3 minutes longer if necessary.
