  (Another recipe from Del Pescatore, along the banks of the Oglio
  River and in the small village of Runate, Italy. This is one of the
  house specialties, risotto made with wild onions and catfish.)MR
  
    Antonio Santini is adamant about using Vialone Nano rice for this
  dish, but arborito will work almost as well. If you can find those
  little onions that look like scallions but have very rounded bulbs
  (cipollotti), use those for a more assertive onion flavor and cut the
  final amount of chives in half.
    In pot bring 4 cups water to boil with lemon, celery, carrot and
  fennel. Reduce to simmer and add catfish. Cook at bare simmer until
  just flaking, about 6 to 10 minutes. Remove fish from poaching
  liquid. Reserve poaching liquid, adding enough fish stock or water to
  make 5 cups. Keep at boil for cooking risotto.
    While fish is poaching, melt 2 tb butter over med. heat in skillet.
  Add onion and cook slowly, stirring, until onion is very tender. When
  onion is tender, add fish and cook several minutes more. Season to
  taste with salt and pepper. Let cool. When fish is cool, chop coarsly.
    In separate saute pan, cook wild onion in 1 tb butter over med.
  heat with dash salt and 2 tb water. When water evaporates, add rice
  and cook cook several minutes, until rice makes a dry "singing" sound
  when stirred. Add 1 cup boiling stock and cook, stirring until almost
  all stock is absorbed by rice. Repeat, 1 cup at time, until rice is
  creamy and still bit chalky to bite, about 15 minutes. Add fish, wine
  and chives and cook another 2 to 3 minutes. When rice is cooked al
  dente, add remaining butter and stir vigorously so mixture becomes
  creamier. Rice should have a slightly soupy consistancy. Makes 4
  servings.
