Seafood Risotto

Made with the readily available long-grain rice instead of Italian short-grain, this seafood risotto does not require constant stirring as does traditional risotto.

Serves 6

Prep Time 20 min

Total Time 45 min.

Ingredients

  • 4 cups reduced-sodium chicken broth, divided
  • 1/2 cup chopped onions
  • 1 1/3 cups uncooked long-grain rice
  • 1/4 cup dry white wine
  • Pinch saffron
  • 12 ounces fresh or frozen seafood, (bay scallops and/or small shrimp)
  • 1/2 cup frozen peas
  • 1/4 cup chopped pimiento
  • Salt & freshly ground pepper to taste

Cooking Directions

Step 1

Pace 1/4 cup broth in a heavy-bottomed saucepan, add onions and cook until soft, about 3 minutes. Add the remaining 3 3/4 cups broth, rice, wine and saffron. Bring to a boil. Cover and simmer over low heat until rice is tender, 20 to 25 minutes. (The risotto should have a creamy consistency.)

Step 2

Stir in the seafood, peas and pimiento. Cover and cook until the seafood is opaque, 3 to 5 minutes Season with salt and pepper.
