Cooking Instructions
Instructions for 2 people (double for 4)
1 Saffron, Crab & Clotted Cream Risotto

Boil a kettle

Peel and finely dice the brown onion[s] 

Peel and finely chop (or grate) the garlic 

 

2 Saffron, Crab & Clotted Cream Risotto

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

Once hot, add the diced onion and cook for 3 min or until softened but not coloured

 

3 Saffron, Crab & Clotted Cream Risotto

Meanwhile, dissolve the Knorr vegetable stock cube[s] in 700ml [1.4L] boiled water and add the saffron to infuse

Separate the white crab meat from the brown crab meat by forking the layer of white meat off and setting it aside 

Tip: The white meat is the top layer and is pale in colour, while the brown meat is the darker layer at the bottom

4 Saffron, Crab & Clotted Cream Risotto

Once the onion has softened, add the chopped garlic, arborio rice and chilli flakes (can't handle the heat? Go easy!) and cook for 1 min

Add 1/3 of the stock and stir continuously with a wooden spoon until it has absorbed

Continue to add the stock a little at a time, stirring continuously for 25-30 min or until the stock has been absorbed and the rice is cooked

5 Saffron, Crab & Clotted Cream Risotto

While the rice is cooking, slice the lemon[s] in half

Add the juice of 1/2 [1] lemon to a large mixing bowl and add 2 tbsp [4 tbsp] olive oil

Season with a pinch of salt and pepper and whisk to combine – this is your lemon dressing

Cut the remaining lemon into wedges for serving

6 Saffron, Crab & Clotted Cream Risotto

Once the risotto is ready, remove it from the heat and season with a pinch of salt

Tip: Your risotto should be porridge-like in consistency so if it is looking a little dry, add a splash of water

Stir the brown crab meat (save the white meat for later) and the clotted cream through the risotto

7 Saffron, Crab & Clotted Cream Risotto

Wash, then dress the rocket with the lemon dressing – this is your dressed salad
