Yield:
4 servings

Ingredients

Risotto:
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 large onion, finely chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 2 cups arborio rice
  • 1 cup dry white wine
  • 6 cups shrimp stock, clam stock or vegetable stock
  • 2 tablespoons squid ink
  • 1/2 pound squid, cut into 1/4-inch rings
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped flat leaf parsley
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper
GRILLED PAWNS:
  • 8 prawns, shelled, deveined, head on
  • Olive oil
  • Salt and pepper
Green Onion Vinaigrette:
  • 8 scallions
  • 1/2 large white onion, cut into chunks
  • 3 garlic cloves
  • 1/3 cup rice wine vinegar
  • 1 cup pure olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 1 pound lobster, steamed, meat removed and coarsely chopped

Directions

Risotto:

Heat olive oil in medium saucepan over medium-high heat. Add onions and garlic and saute until soft. Add the rice and mix to coat with the oil and cook for 2 minutes. Raise the heat to high, add the wine and cook until all the liquid has evaporated. Place the stock and the squid ink in a large saucepan over high heat and stir to combine. Begin adding the hot squid stock 1 1/2 cups at a time and cook until the liquid is absorbed. Continue until the stock is gone and the rice is al dente. Add the squid and cook for 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in the parsley and season with salt and pepper to taste.

GRILLED PAWNS:

Preheat grill or grill pan. Toss prawns in olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Grill for 2 to 3 minutes on each side until just cooked through.

Green Onion Vinaigrette:

Blanch the scallions for 30 seconds in a large pot of boiling salted water over high heat. Drain and shock in cold water. Combine the scallions, onion, garlic, and vinegar in a blender and process until pureed. With the motor running, slowly add the oil until emulsified. Add the honey, season to taste with salt and pepper and pour into a squeeze bottle.

Assemble: Spoon the risotto into 4 bowls. Top each bowl with 2 prawns and drizzle with the green onion vinaigrette and some of the chopped lobster.
