Asparagus Risotto with Crab and Orange Gremolada
Crabmeat and asparagus is a match made in heaven. This recipe is also fantastic, however, without any crab at all. Leave it out and serve the risotto as a side dish or as a first course at a springtime dinner party.

1 quart canned low sodium chicken broth, more if needed
1 1/2 cups water, more if needed
1 pound asparagus, tough ends snapped off and discarded, spears cut into 1/2-inch lengths, tips left whole
2 tablespoons butter
1 tablespoon cooking oil
1 onion, chopped
1 1/2 cups arborio rice
1/2 cup dry vermouth
1 1/4 teaspoons salt
1/2 pound crabmeat, picked free of shell
1 teaspoon grated orange zest, (from 1/2 orange)
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 cup fresh parsley, chopped
1/4 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper




Bring the broth and water to a simmer in a medium pot. Cook the asparagus in the broth until just done, about 4 minutes. Remove with a slotted spoon. Put in a colander, rinse with cold water, and drain. Keep the broth at a simmer.

In a large pot, melt 1 tablespoon of the butter with the oil. Add the onion and cook, stirring occasionally, until translucent, about 5 minutes. Add the rice and stir until it begins to turn opaque, about 2 minutes.

Add the vermouth and salt. Cook, stirring, until the vermouth is absorbed. Add about 1/2 cup of the simmering broth; cook, stirring frequently, until absorbed. The rice and broth should bubble gently; adjust the heat as needed. Continue cooking, adding broth 1/2 cup at a time and letting the rice absorb it before adding more. Cook the rice in this way until tender, 25 to 30 minutes in all. The broth that isn’t absorbed should be thickened by the starch from the rice. You may not need all of the liquid, or you may need more broth or water.

Stir in the asparagus, crab, orange zest, garlic, parsley, pepper, and the remaining 1 tablespoon butter. Cook until heated through.


Wine Recommendation: Asparagus is hard to pair with wine; it combines with any bitter elements to produce a metallic taste. That means no tannins and definitely no oak. Go for a crisp, unoaked Italian sauvignon blanc from Friuli or Collio.

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.
