Lobster Risotto Ingredients|
|Extra-virgin olive oil||1 cup||240 ml|
|Red onions, minced||1 lb||450 g|
|Portobello mushrooms, medium dice||3 lb||1.4 kg|
|Arborio rice||4 lb||1.8 kg|
|Chicken Stock (page 83), hot, plus additional as needed||7-1/2 qt||7 l|
|Dry white wine||1 pt||480 ml|
|Kosher salt, plus additional as needed||2 tbsp||30 ml|
|Ground black pepper, plus additional as needed||1 tbsp||15 ml|
|Butter, room temperature||8 oz||225 g|
|Parmesan, grated||1-1/2 lb||680 g|
|Chives, cut into short pieces||2 oz||60 g|
|Lobster meat, cooked, medium dice||2 1b||900 g|
1. Heat the olive oil in a large rondeau over medium-high heat. Add the onions and sweat until translucent, 6 to 8 minutes.
2. Add the mushrooms and sauté until the juices released by the mushrooms cook away, 7 to 8 minutes more. Add the rice and stir to coat with oil. Cook, stirring constantly, until the mixture gives off a toasted aroma, about 1 minute. Stir in the stock and wine and season with 1 tbsp/15 ml salt and 1 tsp/5 ml pepper.
3. Cover the rondeau and bake in a 350 degrees F/175 degrees C oven until the rice is tender, 30 to 35 minutes. Stir the rice every 5 minutes as it bakes to produce a creamy consistency and to prevent it from sticking. If necessary, add a bit more stock as the risotto bakes; it should be creamy like a porridge when properly cooked.
4. Fold in the butter, cheese, and chives. Taste and then adjust seasoning with salt and pepper.
5. Just before service, fold the lobster pieces into the hot risotto and serve on heated plates.
