Scallop and Shrimp Risotto

/ Sunday, March 11, 2012 /
Risotto. The name alone conjures up images of fancy, low lighted Italian restaurants. A staple to luxury Italian cuisine, Risotto is also one of the simplest dishes you can prepare at home. Requiring little effort, one can have a tasty, simple dish that is packed with flavor.

1.5 cups of Arborio Rice
4 large scallops
.5 lb of shrimp
1 can of Chicken Broth
1 bottle of Clam Juice
Half of large white onion
.5 stick of butter

  1. Cut shrimp into bite size pieces and sauté in pan with olive oil and garlic and onion.
  2. Once the shrimp starts to change color or until onions are translucent. Add arborio rice. Stir unless shrimp is evenly distributed among rice.
  3. Add Clam Juice and Chicken Brother gradually (.25 cup at a time) and stir until rice absorbs liquid and no liquid is left. Repeat process until you use all broth and clam juice.
  4. Add butter and stir until melted.
  5. In another pan, lightly sear scallops. (make sure they're not over cooked).
  6. Plate the risotto and put a scallop on top of each pile.
ENJOY! Let me know what you guys think and any alterations to the recipe!
