Great weeknight dinner. And don't hate me, but I used sea legs. Added green pepper and fish herbs.

Made this for the first time last night as Dungeness Crab is now in season. Used a bit more white wine. Sauteed onion, mushrooms, asparagus and squash to add to risotto when it was done. Also added a few blackened scallops after plated. For scallops - mixed paprika, little cayenne, granulated garlic, granulated onion, oregano, thyme then dusted and sauteed with olive oil. Very, very good. Will try to use brown rice next time. Thanks Cooking Light, a new favorite!
