• In a medium pot, combine 3 cups water (6 cups for 4 servings) and stock concentrate. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to a low simmer. Wash and dry produce. • Halve, peel, and dice half the onion (whole onion for 4). Core, deseed, and dice bell pepper into ½-inch pieces. Thinly slice scallion, separating whites from greens. Mince chili. Zest and quarter lime. • In a small bowl, combine paprika, chili powder, and half the garam masala (all for 4).
• Heat a drizzle of oil in a large pan over medium heat. Add diced onion. Cook, stirring, until softened, 1-2 minutes. • Add rice; stir until translucent, 1-2 minutes. Add ½ cup stock; stir until liquid has mostly absorbed. Repeat with remaining stock, adding ½ cup at a time and stirring until liquid has absorbed. • When all the stock has been used, add coconut milk. Cook, stirring constantly, until rice is al dente and mixture is creamy, 25-30 minutes. (You’ll start the fish after 15 minutes.)
• Meanwhile, pat trout* dry with paper towels; season all over with salt and pepper. Season flesh sides with spice mix (it's OK if not all the spice sticks). • Once risotto has cooked 15 minutes, heat a drizzle of oil in a second large, preferably nonstick, pan over medium heat. Add trout, skin sides down. Cook until skin is crispy, 5-6 minutes. (TIP: Lower heat if skin begins to brown too quickly.) Flip and cook until opaque and cooked through, 4-6 minutes more. • Turn off heat; transfer to a plate. Wipe out pan.
• Heat a drizzle of oil in pan used for trout over medium-high heat. Add bell pepper, scallion whites, and a pinch of chili to taste; cook, stirring, until slightly softened, 6-8 minutes. • Stir in jam, ¼ tsp sugar, and ¼ cup water (½ tsp sugar and 1⁄3 cup water for 4 servings). Simmer until thickened, 3-4 minutes. • Turn off heat and season with a pinch of salt.
• Once risotto is done, turn off heat and stir in lime zest, 1 TBSP butter (2 TBSP for 4 servings), ½ tsp salt (1 tsp for 4), and a squeeze of lime juice. Taste and season with salt and pepper.
• Divide risotto between bowls. Top with trout. Spoon pepper relish over trout. Sprinkle with scallion greens. Serve with remaining lime wedges on the side.
