This seafood risotto is a classic Italian dish served on many occasions, from the simplest to the most elegant. For best results, use homemade seafood stock, though shop-bought can be used in a pinch.
The secret to making a good seafood risotto is to use a great fish stock and of course the freshest seafood you can find. Cook the shellfish and rice separately, as rice needs more time and the shellfish would overcook and get chewy. Replace prawns and scallops with calamari, clams or mussels if you prefer.
