Heat a generous amount of olive oil in a large pan over low heat; add shallot and cook for 1 minute. Add rice and stir to coat the grains in oil.
Pour in white wine and stir until the wine starts to evaporate; add 1/4 of the stock and stir until liquid is absorbed. Repeat, adding 1/4 of the stock at the time and stirring until absorbed and rice is almost cooked.
Stir in peas and red pepper. Add cod and season the risotto with freshly ground black pepper. Stir in seafood and simmer until fish is cooked through, about 5 to 7 minutes. Add a generous handful of finely chopped parsley. Taste and season with salt and pepper if necessary.
Add a little lemon juice and serve immediately with slices of lemon and some more chopped parsley.
