- Heat a deep, narrow pot over medium heat. When very hot, add the olive oil. Sauté the onion until soft. You don’t want it to brown.
- Add the garlic and sauté for 2 minutes.
- Add the rice and sauté for 4-5 minutes, until translucent.
- Add the ouzo and allow it to evaporate.
- Mix the rice often, but not continuously so the kernels don’t break or get mashed.
- Start to add the stock, a spoonful at a time, until the risotto thickens.
- While the risotto is cooking, sauté the seafood until golden.
- This way, when the risotto is ready, the seafood will be ready too.
- Remove the risotto from heat. Add the margarine and tahini.
- Season to taste and add the seafood and rocket.
- Serve IMMEDIATELY!
