HOW TO MAKE SEAFOOD, SAFFRON AND CHORIZO RISOTTO
- Melt the butter in a large pan and sweat the onion for 10 minutes, then add the garlic and chorizo and continue to cook for another 5 minutes. Add the rice and saffron and stir well so that each grain is coated with the butter. Gradually add a ladleful of hot stock at a time and stir the risotto continuously until the liquid has been absorbed and all of the stock has been used up.
- The trick to a great risotto is steam and stirring – it should take about 20 minutes to cook from start to finish. When ready, stir in the seafood and make sure it’s thoroughly heated through, which will take a few minutes more. Finally, stir in the chopped parsley and check the seasoning. Divide the mixture among four warmed bowls, garnish with salad leaves and serve.
