A simple but sophisticated risotto with king prawns, calamari and mussels with celery, which imparts a fragrant and mildly aniseed-y flavour that complements seafood so well. Our aromatic lemon, fennel and herb blend is bursting with colour and flavour and lifts the creaminess of the arborio risotto rice to another level.

Our 30 minute recipe

  • 1.

    Soften the onion

    Heat 1 tbsp oil in a non-stick, lidded pan over medium-low heat. Add the onion and celery (or fennel), cover with a lid, and let them soften without browning for 3-4 mins.

    Meanwhile mix 700ml boiling water with the SEAFOOD STOCK in a heatproof jug. 

  • 2.

    Add the rice

    Melt 5g butter into the veg and stir in the CITRUS & FENNEL MIX.

    Turn the heat up and add the risotto rice and stir fry for 1min.

    Add the WHITE WINE REDUCTION along with a small splash of stock to stop anything sticking, and stir well. 

  • 3.

    Add the stock

    Turn the heat down to medium, and begin to add the stock, one ladle at a time, stirring it and letting the stock absorb into the rice before adding another ladle-full. This process may take around 20 mins. It'll be ready when the rice is cooked but still has some bite to it, and it has a creamy consistency. (Add a splash of stock if it gets dry).

    Gently stir in the seafood and let it cook for 2 mins, so the flavours can infuse.

    Add 10g more butter to the risotto and stir it in, then cover with a lid for 2 mins. 

  • 4.


    Serve the risotto with a squeeze of lemon juice, which really lifts the flavours!

So tasty. Tastes like a professional has cooked it! As i'm not a fan of mussels etc. i use a fish pie mix and it works perfectly. The flavours of the celery and the lemon really lifts the whole flavour. Love it!

Lisa - Jun 07, 2019

Lovely. Very easy.

Jackie - Jun 06, 2019

Loved this one used less rice and more sea food

Ellie - May 30, 2019

So good. I added more seafood and rice, upped the liquid and it fed 2 men and me! Delicious.

Stephen - May 29, 2019

Too much fennel

Belinda - May 29, 2019

Easy and tasty.

Wendy - May 27, 2019

Something I wouldn't have cooked but I loved it! The lemon really brought out the flavours

Wendy - May 27, 2019

Lovely dish, the lemon really added to it

Wendy - May 27, 2019

Lovely dish, the lemon definitely brought out the flavours!

Natalie - May 23, 2019

Weird taste!

Karyn - May 22, 2019

This was delicious. Had a bit of a kick to it and agree fresh lemon enhanced it. Would make it again but this is not a quick meal and must be continually stirred.

Anna - May 02, 2019

Exceptional 10/10

Mahiyar - Apr 29, 2019

If you like seafood and risotto, this dish is a winner! Very tasty and satisfyingly al dente too. Following Anisa's suggestion on the recipe card, we used fennel instead of the celery, which added to the wonderful flavours! Step 3 took a wee bit longer than the stated 15 minutes, but the result was well worth the wait! We will definitely be getting this dish again.

Jackie - Apr 29, 2019

Yes really liked this one

Katie - Apr 28, 2019

One of my favourites!

Ruth - Apr 25, 2019

Very nice

Nicola - Apr 24, 2019

I’ve never cooked risotto before. I would have taken a picture but ate every spoonful - oops

Kristina - Apr 15, 2019

Lovely risotto this is my first ever risotto and it’s delicious.. little hint of spice.. mnam.. I did put 3 spring onions instead of onions.. also I added handful of frozen peas into it and handful of mushrooms.. ????????

Louise - Apr 10, 2019

Easy to cook and very tasty

Jo - Apr 06, 2019

Amazing! Tasted better than from a restaurant!

Jackie - Apr 05, 2019

Really tasty

Sherrie - Mar 28, 2019

It's hard to rate, as I had 2 of the same pots, so couldn't follow the recipe properly.

Tanya - Mar 27, 2019

This was far too strong of pepper and didn't have a nice flavour

Amanda - Mar 23, 2019

Wonderful. Best risotto I’ve made.

Jennet - Mar 22, 2019

Took so long to cook, no idea what I did wrong but took over 30 minutes to do the rice part of the recipe

Kimm - Mar 21, 2019

Definitely a fav! Loved it :)

Melanie - Mar 21, 2019

I made probably 1/4 more in rice !! And a whole bag of Iceland cooked seafood ! I added lime as my lemons and limes generally go in a G and T .. but I had a prehistoric lime so cracked on !! Really Good ! Never cooked a risotto before but I do a mean chilli ! I’m impressed!! It is a tad more faff than the others and I did add the wine to it instead of hot water so maybe I’m just pissed ????????????????????????????

Christina - Mar 18, 2019

Absolute fave!

Andrew - Mar 11, 2019

Too soggy. The 700ml of water is excessive.

Alison - Mar 05, 2019

Too aniseed-y for me. My husband liked it though.

Peter - Mar 05, 2019

The best

Ruth - Feb 25, 2019

Not bad but not my favourite

Charlotte - Feb 24, 2019

Really delicious - I'm not a fan of fennel and was concerned after reading some reviews that I would not like it but it was delicious and did not taste of fennel at all!

Helen - Feb 13, 2019

Least liked so far. Might cook it again with just prawns. I am a seafood fan so was really disappointed with this one.

Allan - Feb 13, 2019

First dish I really enjoyed where there was not enough of it.

Graeme - Feb 13, 2019

Was bland with quite an off putting after taste..

Philip - Feb 09, 2019

I wondered when the string of great recipes would come to an end but today it did. The seafood was way overpowered by the flavour pots. Just too much celery and something else which I could not identify. Had this been served in a restaurant I would not have gone back.

Judith - Feb 09, 2019

Our first "no go" recipe. No blend of flavours and over powering stock mix. Very disappointing!

Marion - Feb 09, 2019

I make risotto alot but this takes it to another level! I added 1 piece of salmon cut into chunks right at the end so it didn't flake everywhere. My 11 yr old fussy son, who normally picks out the smallest pieces of onion, even gobbled the mussels down as if he hadn't eaten for a week! Simply cook has transformed his eating habbits!

Ruth - Feb 07, 2019


Nadine - Jan 31, 2019

Not one of my favourites, the rice took a lot longer to cook and was still crunchy and the dish had a very over powering pepper and aniseed flavour.

Anna - Jan 29, 2019

Wasn't looking forward to this as it didn't smell appealing during cooking. However, we were proved wrong - it was delicious! Will order again.

ryan - Jan 29, 2019

Possibly the least tasty dish we have had from you guys

Beth - Jan 29, 2019

Fennel flavour quite over powering

Nicola - Jan 19, 2019


Nicola - Jan 19, 2019


Ashleigh - Jan 17, 2019

Really nice! Probably not something I would usually make. Found the broth absorbing took way longer than expected. I also think the amount of seafood was a little under so I would probably use two packs in future.

Kirsty - Jan 15, 2019

Really tasty and easy to make :)

Edward - Jan 10, 2019

Loved it.
