Seafood Risotto with Thermomix

Would you like to make seafood risotto with Thermomix?

Seafood goes very well with rice, and you can take this recipe as a base and make your own version.

This is Grazia Parente's version of a thermomix seafood risotto.

The most important thing when making risotto, is choosing the right rice: go for arborio or carnaroli or anything that makes lots of starch. Long grain, basmati or jasmine won't work.

In particular, I love seafood risotto because it always reminds me of summer holidays and the little vending stand on the beach that used to sell these take away delicacies. What a big pleasure it was to eat this tasty risotto while looking at the waves breaking up to the shore!
