Lobster Risotto with Tarragon and Asiago

This luscious dish celebrates the rich, subtly sweet flavor of the lobster meat. One large 3-pound lobster will yield about 12 ounces of cooked meat.


Recipe Details

  • Yield: 6 cups (4 Servings)
  • Cuisine:
  1. Combine the clam juice and chicken broth in a 3-quart saucepan over medium-low heat; bring to a gentle simmer.
  2. Melt the butter in a Dutch oven or similar shape pan oven over medium heat. Add the onion, fennel, and garlic; cook, stirring occasionally, until beginning to soften, 4-5 minutes. Add the rice and cook, stirring, 1 minute. Pour in the vermouth; cook, stirring, until the liquid is almost completely absorbed, about 1 minute. Add 1 cup of the hot broth and cook, stirring constantly, until the broth is almost completely absorbed, about 2-3 minutes. Continue cooking and adding broth, about 1/2 cup at a time, stirring and letting liquid be absorbed before adding the next addition, until the rice is creamy but still slightly toothy, about 18-20 minutes. Add the tarragon and cook 2 minutes. Stir in the lobster meat and cheese; cook until lobster is warm and the cheese has melted, 1-2 minutes. Remove from the heat and stir in the pepper. Serve immediately.
