Shrimp and Bay-Scallop Risotto with Mushrooms
Fresh and dried mushrooms give this risotto a double dose of earthy flavor. You can use twice the shrimp and no scallops, or the reverse. If you prefer sea scallops, quarter them.

1/2 ounce dried porcini mushrooms, or other dried mushrooms
2/3 cup boiling water
4 cups canned low sodium chicken broth
2 cups bottled clam juice
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 tablespoon butter
1 onion, chopped
4 garlic cloves, minced
1 1/4 cups arborio rice
1/2 pound mushrooms, cut into thin slices
1/4 cup dry white wine
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 pound medium shrimp, shelled
1/2 pound bay scallops




In a small bowl, soak the dried mushrooms in the boiling water until softened, about 15 minutes. Remove the mushrooms and strain their liquid into a medium saucepan through a sieve lined with a paper towel. Rinse the mushrooms well to remove any remaining grit and chop them. Add the broth and clam juice to the mushroom-soaking liquid and bring to a simmer.

In a large pot, heat the oil and butter over moderately low heat. Add the onion and cook, stirring occasionally, until translucent, about 5 minutes. Add the garlic and rice and stir until the rice begins to turn opaque, about 2 minutes. Add the fresh mushrooms and cook for 1 minute. Add the wine and salt and cook, stirring, until the wine has been absorbed.

Stir in the dried mushrooms and 1/2 cup of the simmering stock; cook, stirring frequently, until the stock has been absorbed. The rice and the stock should bubble gently; adjust the heat as needed. Continue cooking the rice, adding the stock 1/2 cup at a time and allowing the rice to absorb the stock before adding the next 1/2 cup. Cook the rice until almost tender, about 25 minutes, and then add the shrimp and scallops. Cook, stirring, until the rice is tender and the shrimp and scallops are done, about 5 minutes longer. The stock should be thickened by the starch from the rice. You may not need to use all of the liquid.


Wine Recommendation: The full flavor of shrimp is reason enough to drink a full-bodied chardonnay with this dish. Try a bottle from California or Australia.

Crisp Lime Brook Trout

The oil must be really hot when the fish hits the pan for the skin to turn crisp and golden. Shake the pan back and forth on the burner occasionally to keep the trout from sticking to the bottom and tearing the skin.

Brown butter is a sublimely simple sauce. Emphasize the butter’s nutty flavor with pecans, throw in a little sage and parsley, and you have an ideal topping for trout.
