Recipe by CHEFSINGLEDAD
"Creamy, flavorful risotto with easy-to-follow directions. Don't be intimidated: just get your broth going in one pan, and your rice in another, and slowly combine. Don't forget to taste as you get toward the end of cooking! This seafood recipe uses clams and leftover salmon, but the seafood variations are endless. I use water and clam juice here (not chicken broth) to allow the seafood flavor to shine."

I loved this. It was so yummy and everyone loved it. I only changed a few things, I added more veggies like asparagus and chopped tomatoes and a little cheese just before serving. My boyfriend ate so much and we ended up having just enough left overs, which was fine with us because it tasted so good and took it to work. Our friends came over and tried it right out of the fridge the next day and ended up eating the rest! I'm making it again tomorrow!
Needs more clams and less salmon. Bland, needs salt and pepper. If I make it again I'm thinking ill add celery, carrots, mushrooms and no salmon.
Very good! i would add a little more salmon and/or clams to make it more seafood tasty. I also added spinach which made it a little healthier. An option would be to add some tomatoes too.
Delicious! And it tastes great reheated the next day. My boyfriend made this for me last night and it was better than any meal I've had in a restaurant in ages. Plus, it's very comforting on a cold rainy night.
This was a good recipe with the twists my hubby and I made. The trick is to use really good stock. We used chicken stock instead of water, and used this to cook 15 fresh clams in their shell, along with the shells from about 10 prawns. We then removed and discarded the shells and added the cooked clams to the canned clams and poured the liquid from the canned clams into the stock. We substituted the saffron and basil for 1 tsp of Old Bay seasoning. We added 2 c. chopped spinach and substituted salmon for 10 prawns and 10 scallops. We added these along with 1 cup grated fresh parmesan cheese with the clams when the risotto was almost ready. Belissimo!
We thought it needed a little more zip and minced 1/4 green pepper with the onion.
A really good starting point, and it produces a fine dish. My swing on the recipe is to season it with a bit of Old Bay--just enough to feel that it's there, but not so much as to make it an Old Bay dish. For seafood, I skip the salmon,and use a dozen medium (26-31-count) peeled and deveined shrimp, a dozen sea scallops, and 1/2 cup lump crab meat. Also, instead of water, I make my own stock by simmering for 20 minutes the shrimp shells, a teaspoon celery salt,and the top leaves from a bunch of celery. Basil is good, but I think thyme is better for this dish. Finally, plate the risotto, sprinkle the tops with good Parmesan cheese and place the plates under the broiler until the edges just begin to brown.
Loved it! We added a bunch of asparagus and diced a fresh tomato (about 1 pound) then sprinkled with shaved parmesan just before serving. Divine!
