Positano Seafood Risotto

Just think about this, an Englishman, specialising in British food in Italy, cooking risotto for Positano's mayor? Doesn't really fit does it, but hey ho, I'm always up for a challenge.


  • 4 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, peeled and crushed
  • 1 small glass dry white wine
  • 1 tbsp tomato puree
  • 250g seafood, prepared and cut up into small pieces

  • few clams and another white fish
  • 150g risotto rice
  • about 600mls fish stock

  • salt
  • pepper
