Risotto with Fresh Seafood Recipe


  • 6-7 cups chicken stock
  • 1/4 Tbs olive oil
  • 1 stick unsalted butter
  • 1 medium white onion, diced
  • 2-3 cloves garlic, peeled and thinly sliced
  • salt and fresh ground black pepper
  • 1 1/2 cups Arborio rice
  • 1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 cup grated asiago cheese
  • fresh snipped chives
  • crispy bacon
  • seared shrimp - cook peeled, deveined (tails removed) shrimp in 1 Tbs olive oil/1 Tbs unsalted butter until pink
  • seared scallops - sear scallops in olive oil/1 Tbs butter until caramelized and cooked through.


  1. Place stock in a pan under medium-low heat to warm
  2. Heat olive oil and 2 Tbs unsalted butter in pressure cooker. Add chopped white onions and garlic and salt. Saute until onion is translucent, about 4-5 minutes.
  3. Add rice, saute another 2-3 minutes, or until rice is slightly toasted, but not dry.
  4. Add 4-5 cups of stock.
  5. Secure the lid on the pressure cooker, and bring to high heat, until the regulator starts to rock. Reduce heat - but maintain pressure.
  6. Set timer for 6 minutes.
  7. At 6 minutes, release the pressure using a quick release method. I put cold water in my sink, and gently place the cooker into the water. Be careful!
  8. Once the lock has been released, remove the lid - putting steam away from your face.
  9. Return the cooker to the stove
  10. Add more broth if needed, continue cooking until it is correct consistency. Add salt, pepper, butter and 1 cup cheese.
  11. Taste, it may need more salt.
  12. Remove from heat when ready.
  13. Add 2 Tbs butter, still until combined
  14. Plate the risotto, place seafood on top,
  15. Sprinkle with bacon, green onions, and asiago.
  16. Crack black pepper over the top.
  17. Serve immediately.
