Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cook Time: 40 minutes
Total Time: 1 hour
Servings: 4


  • 2 1/2 cups low-sodium chicken broth
  • 4 tbsp butter
  • 1 cup frozen/fresh shrimp peeled, deveined, tails removed
  • 1 cup frozen/fresh bay scallops
  • 1 zucchini cut into chunks
  • 1/2 cup frozen green peas
  • 1/4 cup red bell pepper diced
  • 1/2 of an onion finely chopped
  • 1 1/2 cups arborio rice
  • 1/2 cup dry white wine
  • 3/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped parsley
  • Salt and pepper


  • In a saucepan, bring the 2-1/2 cups chicken broth to a boil; cover and keep at a simmer.
  • Meanwhile, in a large saucepan, melt 1 tablespoon butter over medium heat. Add the zucchini & red bell pepper and cook, stirring frequently, until soft, about 5 minutes; transfer to a bowl. Add 2 tablespoons butter and the onion to the saucepan and cook, stirring, over medium heat until the onion is softened, about 8 minutes. Add the rice and stir until lightly toasted, about 2 minutes. Add the wine and cook, stirring constantly, until evaporated, about 2 minutes.
  • Stir in 1/2 cup of the hot broth mixture, bring to a simmer and cook, stirring and adjusting the heat as necessary to maintain a low simmer, until the liquid is absorbed, about 2 minutes. Repeat, adding 1-1/2 cups of the remaining broth mixture at a time and allowing the liquid to be absorbed, until the rice is tender, about 18 minutes.
  • Add the frozen peas, scallops, and shrimp. Stir and add a little more broth. Put a lid on the risotto and let it stand for 3-5 minutes. Stir, and repeat if needed. Once the seafood is almost cooked through add the cooked zucchini & red bell peppers and the remaining 1 tablespoon butter. Stir in 1/2 cup Parmesan and the parsley; season with salt and pepper. Serve immediately, place the remaining 1/4 cup Parmesan at the table if your guest desire more cheese.
