Ingredients

Method

300g Tilda Arborio Risotto Rice
10 large diver scallops, shells cleaned
150g fresh peas, blanched and deskinned
4 large shallots
Sprig of fresh thyme
3 cloves of garlic
1 litre fish stock
1/4 bottle of white wine
300ml whipping cream
100g butter
1/4 bunch snipped chives
125g parmesan cheese
75g pea shoots
Course sea salt, to serve
  1. For the Risotto - Finely dice the shallots and garlic and sweat down without colouring.
  2. Add the Tilda Arborio Risotto Rice and stir continuously whilst adding the wine and the thyme. Cook until the liquid has reduced.
  3. Add ½ cream and ½ fish stock to the rice, continuing to stir continuously. When the rice is cooked, spread it onto a tray and allow to cool.
  4. Assembly - Reheat the risotto in a pan, add the Parmesan, peas and broad beans and a little liquid if needed to loosen the risotto. Check the seasoning.
  5. Pan-fry the scallops in hot pan with a little oil and butter. Try not to move them too much as you want a good colour.
  6. Place a pile of salt in the middle of plate and sit a scallop shell on the salt (this will hold it in place and is for garnishing purpose only.)
  7. Add chopped chives to risotto and place in a cleaned shell top with scallop and garnish with pea shoots and chives.
