Lobster & Corn Risotto

Risotto has a reputation for being difficult to make, but once you understand the basic process- cooking the rice slowly by adding hot stock in small amounts- it’s really not hard, and infinitely adaptable to the season or what you happen to have in the fridge.

Cooking InstructionsHide images
step 1
Remove the husks and silk from the Corn Cobs (3 ears) and cut off the kernels as close to the cob as possible. You should have 2 cups of kernels. Set the kernels aside.
step 2
Break the cobs in half and place in a medium saucepan with 10 cups of water. Cook over low heat for 15 minutes.
step 3
Meanwhile, heat the Extra-Virgin Olive Oil (2 Tbsp) and Unsalted Butter (2 Tbsp) in a medium pot or Dutch oven over medium heat. Add the Leeks (2 cups) and sauté for 5 to 7 minutes, until tender.
step 4
Add the Arborio Rice (1 1/2 cups) and stir for one more minute. Add the Dry White Wine (1/2 cup) and simmer over low heat, stirring constantly, until most of the liquid has evaporated.

step 5
When the stock has been cooking for fifteen minutes, remove the corn cobs and discard, keeping the stock at a simmer as you cook the risotto.
step 6
Add the stock to the pot with the leeks and rice, one ladleful at a time, stirring almost constantly and waiting for the stock to be absorbed before adding more. This process should take about 25 minutes.
step 7
When the risotto has been cooking for 15 minutes, add the Cherry Tomatoes (1 1/2 cups), corn, Kosher Salt (1/2 Tbsp), and Ground Black Pepper (1/2 tsp). Continue cooking and adding stock, stirring almost constantly, until the rice is tender but still firm.

step 8
When the risotto is done, turn off the heat and stir in 1 tsp zest of the Lemon (1), Tarragon (1 Tbsp), Parmesan Cheese (1/2 cup) and Lobster Meat (13 oz), reserving a few pieces of lobster meat for serving.
step 9
Serve immediately, with the reserved lobster pieces on top of each serving. Enjoy!
