Risotto is a classic Italian rice dish, originally from the Lombardy area of Italy. It is made of short grain rice that is cooked slowly with broth or stock in a way that creates a creamy, silky and decadent dish.
Risotto is a great example of an elevated simple dish. It uses simple ingredients (rice, butter and stock), a careful technique and lots of love to create something truly delicious. You can top your risotto with just about anything, from parmesan cheese, to fresh green peas, bacon, or -as in this case - delicious seafood.
This recipe takes risotto to the next level with fresh shrimp, scallops, calms and a pop of saffron. It is a luxurious dish that’s sure to impress. It's perfect for a romantic date, a special meal, or a dinner party with friends.
