Risotto di Mare Seafood Risotto Recipe

by Gourmet Food World
For the lover of seafood, it doesn't get any better than a traditional risotto di mare - seafood risotto. We designed this as an appetizer, to be served on small bowls at parties where you don't want to fill up with just one thing. However, you can serve these in regular plates and bigger portions (the servings will change from 6 to 2).
