IN THE KITCHEN: SEAFOOD RISOTTO

I am happy to share a dish that I was dying to make ever since I got the Fresh and Easy cookbook, seafood risotto. I went all out for this recipe, I went to the Santa Monica seafood market and picked up the freshest prawns (they were alive when I bought them…yikes!) clams and squid.

I think the best part about this recipe was the fresh fish broth. I have never made my own broth and surprisingly enough it was super easy. Working with such fresh ingredients really elevates any dish, and this holds true when using the freshest seafood. 

I love visiting the seafood market, I have never had a bad piece of seafood. I think the prawns were the best. It is definitely worth the money to try them out on special occasions.
