Shrimp and Scallop Risotto

Shrimp and Scallop Risotto created by Bayhill

I got this from an old Reader's Digest cookbook. Haven't made it in years, but I just dug all my books out of the garage after moving, and remembered how great this one is!

    I thought this was good - I used all shrimp. . had no asparagus or celery. Added bacon to the onion for extra flavor. Also used arborio rice instead or long grain. I don't think it would be as good with long grain rice. Next time I may try to use a more flavorful oil instead of regular olive oil.

    This is an amazing recipe! I made as directed, but used arborio rice and slowly stirred the broth into it (how traditional risotto is made). I also added green onions and omitted celery. Thanks for the fantastic recipe!

    Delicious!! This went together quickly and easily and had lots of flavor. I made this as written except that I cut the asparagus into 1" pieces and increased both the salt and pepper. My family really enjoyed this and I will definitely be making it again. Thank you for sharing. This was made for PAC spring 2007.

    This is fantastic!! I used aborio rice (this is better for risotto), and didn't saute the prawns & scallops - I just added them with the risotto mixture about 10 minutes before it was ready. I also didn't add the celery as I forgot to buy it. This tasted even better the next day. DH already has asked for it again. Thanks for a great recipe, Howmanybites?
