Asparagus And Clam Risotto Recipe


  • 1 cup arborio rice
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 3 shallots, minced
  • 1/2 cup dry white wine (the same vintage you will serve with the meal)
  • 4-5 cups clam juice or vegetable broth (I use a mixture of both)
  • 1 tin baby clams (or 1 1/2 cups shucked fresh clams, but tinned are fine)
  • 1 bunch fresh asparagus
  • 1/2 cup good quality prepared pesto (make your own if you wish, but it adds a lot of time to the recipe!)
  • freshly-grated parmesan cheese


Simple To Pull Together, This Risotto Stands On It's Own As A Main Course - Or Serve Smaller Portions Along Side A Perfectly Grilled Cut Of Beef...The Stirring Takes Time, But It's Worth It!
