Seafood Risotto-Best Yet

For me, Risotto is the ultimate comfort food. When you make this one, it will probably hit number 1 on your list as well.

  • 1 tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 cup finely chopped small onion
  • pinch of salt
  • pinch each of white pepper and black pepper
  • 6 cups seafood stock
  • 1 tsp. minced garlic
  • 2 cups Arborio rice
  • 2 lbs. shrimp and scallops
  • 1 tbsp. butter
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup Asiago cheese, freshly grated
  • 2 tbsp. finely chopped parsley leaves

In a large frypan, heat the oil on a medium heat and add the onions. Season with salt and peppers, cooking until the onions are soft. This should take about 2-3 minutes.

Add the stock and garlic, bring this to a boil and simmer for 5-7 minutes.

Reduce the heat and add the rice, stirring constantly, cook for about 12 minutes.

Lightly season the seafood and continue cooking for 6 minutes. Stir in the butter, cream, cheese and simmer a further 2 minutes, stirring constantly.

Remove from heat, spoon the risotto into a serving dish and garnish with parsley.

In a word: YUM, YUM and YUM. So delicious.
