Scallop & Chorizo Skewers with pea risotto.

Take some scallops, and chorizo add some risotto rice and not a whole lot else and you have a simple but delicious dinner. The key to any great risotto is to only add stock to the rice when the previous ladle of risotto is fully absorbed.

Chorizo Scallops

The scallops and chorizo slices are threaded onto skewers, which have been soaked in water for 5 minutes ensuring that the wood will not burn. The marinade is simple; olive oil, pepper, thyme, chili and garlic sea salt and lemon juice.
