  1. Heat olive oil in a large, heavy-bottomed saucepan over medium-low heat. Cook the leek and garlic until soft, about 5 minutes. Stir in the rice, and cook for 5 minutes more, stirring frequently.
  2. Pour in 1 1/2 cups of the chicken broth, and bring to a boil over high heat, stirring occasionally. Reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer, uncovered for 5 minutes, continuing to stir. Pour in the remaining chicken broth and wine, increase heat to medium, and cook for about 5 more minutes, stirring constantly.
  3. Add the scallops, shrimp, peas, and red pepper. Cook, stirring constantly, until the remaining liquid is almost absorbed, and the seafood has cooked, about 5 minutes. When the rice is just tender and slightly creamy, season with Parmesan cheese, basil, lemon juice, and pepper.

This was really good! I didn't follow the directions exactly with respect to the risotto technique, but instead followed the method I always use: after cooking the rice for a minute or two in t...

Made a few modifications to this recipe. Skipped the leek, substituted asparagus for the snow peas. Used both lemon juice and lemon zest. Used fresh basil leaves instead of dried. Also added...

This was delicious. Only problem - I followed the 2 serving amount and it was not enough for 2 people.

Love it! Used all scallops (no shrimp). Only because I had scallops left to use. Used peas but next time will definately make with asparagus. Added 1T butter at end. Mmmmm. Thanks!

Just finished this easy to make dish, along with the rest of the wine. Pretty tasty. Not knock your socks off good, but definitely above average. I'm going to use asparagus next time and cut ...
