Crab Risotto with Salmon Caviar and Fresh Herbs

Crab Risotto with Salmon Caviar and Fresh Herbs

INGREDIENTS:

  • 7 cups seafood stock or vegetable stock
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 large shallots, finely chopped
  • 2 small celery heart, finely chopped (optional)
  • 2 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 1 ¼ cups white wine
  • 2 ¼ cups Arborio or Carnaroli rice
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 8 ounces lump crabmeat
  • Small handful tiny sprigs fresh dill or chervil, or snipped chives
  • ½ – ¾ cup crème fraiche (optional)
  • 2 ounces salmon caviar

METHOD:

  • Bring the stock to a simmer in a saucepan. Partially cover and keep hot.
  • Warm the butter & oil in a large, heavy- bottomed pot. Add the shallots & celery (if using) & sauté until tender, about 5 minutes.
  • Stir in the tomato paste & cook for 1 minute.
  • Add the wine & simmer, uncovered, until it has completely evaporated.
  • Add the rice, 1 teaspoon each of salt & pepper, & stir for 2 to 3 minutes, until the kernels begin to turn opaque.
  • Add enough hot stock just to cover the rice in batches, stirring & scraping down the sides of the pan until the risotto is loose & creamy, about 18 to 20 minutes.
  • Stir in the crabmeat, breaking it up, then remove from the heat.
  • Stir in the dill & season to taste with salt & pepper.
  • Top each serving with a dollop of crème fraiche & a spoonful of salmon caviar.
