Ingredients

  • 3 cups chopped cooked lobster meat
  • 4 1⁄2 cups fish stock
  • 1 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 1⁄2 cups arborio rice
  • 1 cup dry white wine
  • 2 cups fresh green peas
  • 1⁄2 cup shredded fontina cheese
  • 1 Tbsp. lemon juice
  • 20 sprigs fresh chives

Directions

  • Place the lobster meat in a dish or pan with a tight-fitting lid. Pour in a bit of the fish stock to keep the meat moist, and cover securely to keep warm. Set aside.
  • Heat the oil to medium temperature in a large saucepan. Add the rice, and stir for 1 minute. Add the wine, and stir until fully absorbed. Add the stock 1⁄2 cup at a time, stirring frequently and allowing each addition to be completely absorbed before adding the next. Continue until all the stock is absorbed and the rice is tender. Before adding the final 1⁄2 cup stock, stir in peas.
  • Remove from heat, and stir in the cheese and lemon juice.
  • To serve, ladle risotto into serving dishes and top with lobster meat and chives.
