Seafood Risotto4.0/5 (BASED ON reviews)
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
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.
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.
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.
Serve the risotto with a squeeze of lemon juice, which really lifts the flavours!

I was worried making this because I didn’t think it looked the most appetising and the smell of the fish stock was really off putting. To my surprise it was actually really lovely and very easy to make

It tasted like eating seafood abroad, so delicious! The pots made it taste really seafoody rather than just a risotto with seafood in it like I was usually make. Really yummy!
Carol - Nov 22, 2019
Too much pepper for my husband but I loved it
Ella - Nov 20, 2019
By laziness I did it with basmati rice instead of the risotto rice... It was amazing anyway!
Natalie - Nov 18, 2019
Was far too strong of a taste for me
Edina - Nov 16, 2019
It has a strong black pepper flavour - it is not a spice I would use in a seafood risotto. Apart from that it is nice.

Needed some extra seasoning. I added the fresh squeezed lemon juice at the last minute in the pan, which really lifted the dish.
Alison - Sep 08, 2019
Good fennel taste
Rich - Sep 05, 2019
Great great dish
Ashlie - Sep 04, 2019
Lovely flavours, lots of stirring but worth the wait. Would recommend adding peas at the end and it goes great with a bit of french stick with butter.

Took longer than suggest.
