Risotto ai Frutti di mare - seafood recipe from Amalfi!

Amalfi is our new favourite cooking holiday destination and certainly a very famous place for its seafood and fish dishes. The Flavours chefs couldn't have come up with a more delicious recipe today when it comes to a typical dish of Amalfi. Try this seafood risotto recipe for dinner tonight and enjoy a special meal that is also very good for your diet.



  • 400 gr carnaroli rice
  • 600 gr seafood (mussels, clams,...)
  • 1 onion
  • 1 glass of white wine
  • 2 lt vegetable broth (made of celery, carrots, onion)
  • 2 courgettes
  • Salt (the right amount)
  • 50 gr grated Parmesan cheese
  • 50 gr olive oil


Dice the courgettes. Cook the mussels and the clams in a pan on high heat until the shells open. Then separate the shells, keeping the cooking water previously strained. In a separate pan, brown the onion with oil, add the rice and let toast for a few minutes. Simmer with white wine and add the vegetable broth once in a while. When rice is half cooked, add courgettes and seafood cooking water. Keep adding broth until the rice cooked; blend with grated Parmesan cheese and serve.
