Description

Rich and cheesy risotto with lobster and green peas.

Ingredients

  • 2 Tablespoons Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • ½ whole Onion, Chopped
  • 1 cup Arborio Rice
  • ½ cups White Wine
  • 4 cups Chicken Broth, Divided
  • 12 ounces, weight Lobster Tails
  • 4 ounces, weight Cream Cheese
  • ½ cups Grated Parmesan Cheese, Divided
  • 1 cup Frozen Peas
  • Salt And Pepper, to taste

Preparation

1. Heat the oil in a skillet over medium heat then add onion and saute for about 3 minutes. Put dry rice in the skillet and saute/toast for an additional 2 or 3 minutes. Pour in wine and simmer until absorbed. Reduce heat and keep warm.

2. In a sauce pot bring 1 cup broth to a soft boil and throw the lobster tail(s) in. Cover and allow to steam about 4 minutes, or until shell(s) turn bright red. If using frozen lobster it may take a few extra minutes, but don’t worry if you see they are not completely cooked through when you shell them. They will cook more later. When done remove them from the broth using tongs and set them aside.

3. Raise the heat on your rice mixture to medium. Start putting broth into your rice 1/2 cup at a time while keeping the liquid at a gentle simmer. Stir frequently and allow broth to absorb before adding additional broth. Add salt and pepper to taste. Continue adding broth 1/2 cup at a time until it’s all been added.

4. Shell the lobster meat and cut into small pieces. Any bits not cooked through can go back into the sauce pot of broth for a minute or two.

5. If the rice isn’t cooked enough (it should be slightly al dente) after adding the 3 cups of additional broth, you can add some of the broth from the sauce pot. Your rice should have about 3 1/2 cups of broth in it, plus the 1/2 cup wine.

6. Stir in the cream cheese, 1/4 cup Parmesan, the lobster, and the peas. Allow everything to combine and heat thoroughly.

7. Salt and pepper again if needed, and serve with a sprinkle of the reserved Parmesan on top.
