Bill Granger's Crab & Asparagus Risotto
In my attempt to try and eat healthier food (takeaway pizza and Nando's every day does not a healthy girl make!), I've been looking through my Bill Granger books. Last night, we had crab and asparagus risotto, from bills food. It is an ordinary risotto, with finely sliced asparagus, crab meat, lemon juice and lemon zest added at the end. I used twice the amount of asparagus that the recipe asks for, because I wanted to use it all up. I also used tinned crab (terrible, I know), which tasted fine, but broke down in the risotto, so you couldn’t see any pieces of crab. Next time, I’d probably try firm fresh crab, lobster, scallops or prawns – so that you’d be able to see in the finished dish.
It tasted great! It was so easy, but very luxurious at the same time. Definitely a keeper.
