Seafood Risotto and a Giveaway (Retail Value $199. US)

Sharing is caring!

seafood risotto

I was recently contacted by the folks who work for an Italian cookware brand, Lagostina. CONTEST IS OVER!

They asked if I could create a winter risotto recipe using the pot and to give an honest review, I thought about it for less than a second and said Yes!

Since it’s the holiday season with Christmas around the corner and New Years right behind I decided to make a seafood risotto with lobster, scallops and shrimp, why not, it’s the holidays and besides, this would be perfect for any special occasion.

Lagostina risotto pot

I have to tell you I was blown away by the high quality of this pot as soon as I took it out of the box and felt the weight. The lid is beautiful, made of solid cherry wood on the top with the word risotto carved into it, the bottom of the lid is made of heavy stainless and guess what, you can flip the lid over and use it as a trivet! It definitely passed the beauty test, now to see how it cooks up my risotto.

seafood risotto ingredients

I got all my ingredients all together, I decided to use Prosecco instead of white wine I thought it would pair well with the seafood and give it an extra special touch. ย I wasn’t sure if I was going to use parmesan cheese or not, I normally do in all my risotto’s but after it was done and I tasted it I felt there was no need for it at all so it’s your call on whether or not you want to use some.

Also for the first time in my life I broke down a whole cooked lobster strictly because I wanted those claws for garnish on my risotto, when in doubt watch a YouTube, I did and it was easy to figure out after seeing it, I basically just used the tail and claws.

making seafood risotto

First I got my stock going in a separate pan, I bought some seafood stock and enhanced it with the peeled shrimp shells, after it simmered for a while I strained it real good and I was ready to begin making the risotto.

Before I received the lagostina ย pot, the pan I always made risotto in was my heavy duty cast iron pan with the fancy French name and believe me it does a wonderful job, but honestly it doesn’t compare to this. The heavy stainless steel core produces precise and even heating, it has a wide rim which speeds evaporation and although I stood over the pan ready to stir with my wooden spoon it felt like I didn’t have to stir it as often as I do with my other pan.

When all the stock was absorbed I just folded in my chopped seafood and placed the whole pot onto the trivet, very impressive!

This was by far one of the best risotto’s I have ever made, creamy and perfectly cooked!

Ingredients
  • Serves 2
  • 1 pre-cooked whole lobster using the claws and tail
  • 8 shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 6 large scallops
  • all seafood should be pre-cooked and diced into chunks
  • 1½ quart of seafood stock, either store bought or make your own by simmering water with shrimp and lobster shells, onions, celery, peppercorns and a little thyme, then straining twice.

  • ¾ cup of Prosecco or white wine
  • 1 cup of canned or fresh diced tomatoes, drained of wet liquid
  • parsley

  2. Break down your whole lobster tail, removing the shell from the claws so they stay in tact, remove the shell from the tail and cut into chunks, place all the lobster meat into the juices of the cooked shrimp and scallops on the sheet pan.
  3. Place a knob of butter and a good drizzle of olive oil into the bottom of the risotto pot.
  4. Add shallots and cook until they soften.
  5. Add rice, stirring until coated and hot.
  6. Deglaze with the Prosecco or white wine.
  7. When liquid is absorbed then start adding your simmering warm seafood stock, one ladle at a time, stirring until it gets absorbed, then add another ladle full.
  8. Keep flame on medium heat and continue adding warm stock and stirring until absorbed and rice reaches a tender and slightly al dente bite, you'll know when it's ready.
  9. Turn off heat, add another knob of butter, a little olive oil, the drained chopped tomatoes and parsley, then stir to incorporate and finally add in your chopped seafood.
  10. Put the lid on and let it rest for 1 minute.

I gave it a rating of 5 starts based on ease to prepare, ingredients and, of course, the beautiful Risotto pot. No matter what, from henceforth, my risottos will be cooked in this pot. I would love to add this piece of functional art to my collection of necessities.
    Please keep the recipes coming.
    Merry Christmas and thank you for giving readers the opportunity to receive this beautiful pot.
