Risotto with Fresh Corn and Basil Oil

Californians are so enamored of risotto that they have taken it in new directions, adding ingredients that would make most Italians shudder. But even Italians, who rarely eat sweet corn, would appreciate this variation. Offer it as a starter before a shrimp or salmon main course, or serve it in smaller portions as a side dish.

I love this recipe
August 31, 2011
I changed the recipe from risotto to basmati rice and served it at room temp. It was outstanding and I have made it a couple of times during August already. The sweet corn is wonderful right now, but I am wondering what I am going to do during the winter. Also I made my own basil olive oil with dried basil. Little flakes of basil were in the dish and made it great. I have received compliments on it and will be making it soon.
Pros: Easy, Healthy, Adaptable, Impressive, Will Make Again

Excellent recipe
December 27, 2010
This recipe is great to pair with scallops. I first got this idea from a wine tasting event I attended and fell in love with the contrast in flavor of the scallops and the risotto. I've made it several times and all guests seemed to enjoy it. I would highly recommend it.

A lot of work for mediocre taste
May 18, 2010
The review headline says it all. It was a lot of work(and pretty expensive too for a bottle of basil oil)....and ultimately tasted bland.
