I followed this recipe, making the broth with the lobster bodies, etc. I added some crushed red pepper at the beginning with the garlic, substituted shallot for the onion. I also used parmesan vs monteray jack cheese. Used less than was called for. It came out restaurant quality - AWESOME! A great dish to impress guests or anyone!
I made this tonight as we had been to Charleston, SC a few weeks ago and had Lobster Corn Risotto with one of our dinner dishes and it was TO DIE FOR. I made this but we had bought some lobster tails from Costco that I used for soup that was very good. I followed the rice recipe exactly using 3c of chicken broth instead of the lobster broth described . I just warmed the lobster bites in boiling water and used them instead of all the lobster directions. I am sure the way this recipe is described would have been better, but this was a lot easier. I also added fresh chopped parsley and a diced tomato on top and it was FANTASTIC! I have saved this recipe and will definitely do this again..
I followed all of the directions, but left subbed peas for corn. It wasn't hard but it was time consuming. I had the seafood guy steam and shell the lobster and this saved a TON of time and mess! I got about 3 cups of stock, but the risoto was still very tender at the end of it. So I ended up cooking it with another 1/2 cup chicken broth. This is so amazing!!!! I am curious to see how it would be with just using chicken broth rather than that base. But its really a great recipe! So rich and creamy and the lobster in it was perfect! We had this as a side dish with a fish called "Turbot."
Wonderful! Used 2 small lobster tails and a lb of shrimp. We couldn't find clam juice, but we found clam sauce. I'm not sure if it's the same thing or not, but it was so good.
