How To Make Spring Asparagus Risotto
Have a zesty meal with this creamy spring asparagus risotto meal. Cooked with fresh herbs, lemon juice, and zest, and optional seafood toppings.
In a large saucepan, heat broth over medium-high heat.
When it boils, reduce heat to a simmer and maintain over low heat, taste for salt, and adjust as needed.
In a large heavy saucepan over medium heat, heat the oil and add the shallots; sauté 3 to 4 minutes.
Add the rice; mix well so the rice is coated throughout and saute until the rice is slightly translucent for about 2 to 3 minutes.
Add the wine and stir until it is absorbed.
Add a ladleful of the simmering stock; stir and wait until it is absorbed before adding another ladleful stirring gently and almost constantly.
Continue this process until the rice is creamy, tender to the bite but slightly firm in the center.
Add the asparagus along with the last ladle of broth and continue cooking for 5 minutes, total time should be about 25 to 30 minutes from the time you started.
When all the liquid is absorbed, remove from heat and stir in the lemon juice, parsley, and Parmigiano-Reggiano.
Serve immediately and top with fresh cracked pepper, lemon zest, and extra grated cheese if desired.
