 Tasty Instant Pot RV Recipes: Trout Risotto with Mascarpone

Trout risotto as made my Chef M’s Instant Pot RV Recipes file

There are so many tasty Instant Pot RV Recipes! Who doesn't love cooking in Instant Pot?  It is the perfect appliance for your RV.

Here is a super simple gourmet delight from my Instant Pot RV Recipe file that you can create using leftovers.

I had grilled trout in the fridge from the night before that I incorporated into this risotto but… use your imagination and see what leftovers you have in your fridge that you could add to a simple risotto.  Cooked salmon, chicken, scallops, crab, lobster, halibut, steak, or grilled veggies may be just the right touch to create a one-dish risotto Instant Pot RV Recipes delight. 

The creaminess of this warm comfort food along with the tang of the lemon peel compliments the grilled items you add to the dish. 

Serve the risotto warm.  I'm certain this will be a favorite easy go-to Instant Pot RV Recipes dinner delight!

Happy Cooking…
