  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 cup shallots, minced
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 1/2 cups uncooked Arborio rice or other short-grain rice
  • 2 cups cooked lobster meat, coarsely chopped (about 2 [1/2-pound] tails)
  • 1 1/2 cups fresh corn kernels (about 3 ears)
  • 1/3 cup chopped fresh basil
  • 1/4 cup (1 ounce) grated fresh Parmesan cheese
  • 3 tablespoons sherry

Preparation

Bring broth to a simmer in a saucepan (do not boil). Keep warm over low heat.

Stir in 1/2 cup broth, and cook 3 minutes or until the liquid is nearly absorbed, stirring constantly.

Add lobster and remaining ingredients; cook 5 minutes or until thoroughly heated.
