Romantic Seafood Risotto

Romantic Seafood Risotto
There's something very romantic about making risotto. It takes care and love to bring it to its rich creaminess but not much time to cook! The ingredients are simple and can be found anywhere. You can add any type of seafood that you like to the dish - clams if you like them better than mussels, lobster instead of scallops, etc. have it your way!

Seafood Risotto


2 C. Chicken Broth
1 - 8oz. Bottle of Clam Juice
2 tsp. Butter
1/2 C. uncooked Arborio or Valencia Rice
1/4 C. Chopped Shallots
1/8 tsp. Saffron Threads
1 Tbs. fresh lemon juice
1/2 C. Grape Tomatoes, halved
4 oz. medium shrimp, peeled and deveined
4 oz. Bay Scallops
2 Tbs. whipping cream
Chopped fresh parsley


Bring clam juice and broth to a simmer in a medium saucepan. Keep warm but do not boil. This will be added to the rice in stages.

Over medium heat, melt the butter in a large saucepan and add shallots. Cook 2 minutes stirring frequently.
Add rice and saffron to the pan and cook for 30 seconds more. Add lemon juice and 1/2 cup of the hot broth to the mixture. Cook for 2 minutes or the liquid is almost absorbed and then add another 1/2 cup of the broth.

Repeat the process until each portion of the broth is absorbed before adding the next - about 18 to 20 minutes.

Stir in tomatoes and cook for 1 minute. Stir in the shrimp and scallops and cook until done, stirring often.

Once all the broth is absorbed and the seafood is done, remove from the heat and stir in the cream. Sprinkle with parsley.

Serve with a salad, crusty bread and a nice Pino Grigio!
