The sprightly lemon-licorice flavor of fresh chervil accentuates the lemon zest in the risotto to make a very refreshing side dish that is especially good with fish.
2 3/4 cups water
2 cups chicken broth

3 tablespoons unsalted butter
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1 shallot, finely chopped
1 1/2 cups arborio rice
1/3 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice (from about 2 lemons)
2 tablespoons minced fresh chervil, plus sprigs for garnish
zest of 1/2 lemon
salt and freshly ground black pepper
Bring water and chicken broth to simmer in medium saucepan. Reduce heat to low; cover and keep broth hot.

Melt 1 1/2 tablespoons butter and olive oil in heavy large saucepan over medium heat. Add shallots and saute until just tender, about 2 minutes. Add rice and stir until rice begins to turn opaque, about 3 minutes. Reduce heat to medium-low. Add 1 cup simmering broth. Cook until liquid is nearly absorbed, stirring often, about 5 minutes. Add remaining hot broth 1 cup at a time, allowing broth to be absorbed before adding more and stirring frequently until rice is just tender and mixture is creamy, about 20 minutes. Stir in Parmesan cheese, lemon juice, chopped chervil, remaining 1 1/2 tablespoons butter and lemon zest. Season risotto to taste with salt and pepper. Garnish with chervil sprigs and serve.
