Lobster Risotto

Leslie Speed Dutton


This dish can be the main course and start with a ceased salad or it can be an appetizer.

Growing up on the Texas Gulf Coast, the love of seafood, no matter where it's from is embedded in my DNA. I love Italian food, too. This is a great combination.

Risotto is really easy to make. Do't let anyone fool you. If you can stand in front of your stove for 20-25 minutes, stirring rice at a speedy pace,you can make any kind of risotto that you can find or develope a recipe for.mit just takes patience. ????
