mins

3
c.

bottled clam juice

2 1/2
c.

water

2
tbsp.

extra-virgin olive oil

1


small onion

Salt and freshly ground pepper

1 1/2
c.

arborio rice

pinch saffron threads

1/2
c.

dry white wine

1
tbsp.

unsalted butter

1


shallot

1/2
lb.

cooked shrimp

1/2
lb.

lump crabmeat

2
tbsp.

flat-leaf parsley

1/2
c.

mascarpone cheese

  1. In a medium saucepan, combine clam juice and water and bring to a simmer. Keep warm.
  2. In a large saucepan, heat olive oil. Add onion, season with salt and pepper, and cook over moderate heat, stirring, until softened, about 5 minutes. Add rice and cook 1 minute, stirring to thoroughly coat. Crumble saffron into wine and add to rice. Cook, stirring until wine is absorbed. Add 1 cup warm clam juice and cook over moderate heat, stirring constantly, until nearly absorbed. Continue adding juice 1/2 cup at a time, stirring constantly, until it is nearly absorbed between additions. Risotto is done when rice is al dente and suspended in a thick, creamy sauce, about 20 minutes total. Season with salt and pepper.
  3. Melt butter in a large skillet. Add shallot and cook over moderate heat until softened, about 2 minutes. Add shrimp and crab and cook until just heated through. Scrape seafood into risotto and stir in parsley and mascarpone. Serve immediately.

To make this creamy risotto, substitute clam juice and water for chicken stock, then add cooked shrimp, lump crabmeat, and mascarpone cheese.
