Directions

  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.

I did not care for this recipe. I consider myself to be a more advanced cook so therefore when making the risotto I heated the broth/wine and added it by 1/2 cup measures as you're supposed to do when making risotto. So as a result, it takes much longer than the recipe states. The sourness of the wine/lemon juice completely overpowers the flavour of everything else (the seafood choices in this recipe are such delicate flavours!). I made this for my husband and mother and none of us cared for it.

I made some changes to the recipe but I used all of the flavors in the meal. I sauted the seafood on the side in olive oil and added a squeeze of lemon. I served the snow peas steamed on the side, and I used more chicken stock instead of wine in the recipe (only 1/2 cup of wine). I didn't put any lemon into the risotto since the wine had plenty of citrus flavors. Thanks for submitting this recipe. After a few changes we had a great meal.

good and refreshing flavor. Hubby found it a little too sour, so next time I'll only use about half the lemon juice. Also didn't use scallop, which I think would've given it a more complex flavor.
