Cooking Instructions
Instructions for 2 people (double for 4)
1 Lemony Crab & Pea Risotto

Boil a kettle

Peel and finely chop the brown onion[s]

Heat a large, wide-based pan (preferably non-stick) with a drizzle of olive oil over a medium heat

Once hot, add the chopped onion with a pinch of salt and cook for 3-4 min or until beginning to soften

2 Lemony Crab & Pea Risotto

While the onion softens, peel and finely chop (or grate) the garlic

Dissolve the Knorr vegetable stock cube[s] in 700ml [1.4L] boiled water

3 Lemony Crab & Pea Risotto

Once the onion is beginning to soften, add the arborio rice with the chopped garlic and cook for 1 min, stirring to coat the grains of rice in the oil

Add the Chinese rice wine and cook for 30 secs

Add the stock a ladle at a time, stirring occasionally, for 20-25 min

4 Lemony Crab & Pea Risotto

Meanwhile, separate the white crab meat (the top layer) from the brown crab meat (the bottom layer) with a spoon, as you'll use them at different parts of the cooking process

Season the white crab meat with a pinch of salt and set aside for later

5 1880 - Lemony Crab & Pea Risotto

Grate the cheddar cheese

6 Lemony Crab & Pea Risotto

Once the rice is almost cooked, add the brown crab meat to the pan with the blanched peas and give everything a good mix up

Add the remaining stock and cook for a further 5 min or until the peas are tender and the rice is cooked

7 Lemony Crab & Pea Risotto

Once done, add most of the grated cheese (save some for garnish!) with the juice of 1/2 [1] lemon and a large knob of butter

Stir it all together – this is your lemony crab & pea risotto

Cut the remaining lemon into wedges
