Ingredients

  • 4 cups of chicken or vegetable broth
  • 1 large onion, finely chopped
  • 3 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 1 cup arborio rice
  • 1/2 cup white wine
  • 1 lb fresh crabmeat, picked over for shells
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 tbsp chopped fresh marjoram
  • Salt and pepper, to taste

Directions

  • In a medium saucepan, heat the broth over low heat. Keep it warm while you make the risotto.
  • In a large saucepan, heat the butter over medium heat. Add the onion and cook until soft and translucent, about 5 minutes.
  • Stir in the garlic and cook for 1-2 minutes until fragrant.
  • Add the arborio rice and stir to coat the grains in the butter. Cook for 2-3 minutes, stirring constantly, until the rice is slightly toasted.
  • Pour in the white wine and stir until it has been absorbed by the rice.
  • Begin to add the warm broth, a ladleful at a time, stirring constantly. Wait until each addition of broth has been absorbed before adding the next.
  • After about 20 minutes of stirring and adding broth, the rice should be creamy and tender.
  • Stir in the crabmeat, heavy cream, Parmesan cheese, and marjoram. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.
  • Serve immediately, garnished with extra Parmesan cheese and fresh marjoram, if desired. Enjoy!
