You might already be thinking about what you'll be serving over the holidays, and here's an idea from a restaurant on Long Island.

Over the holidays, chances are you indulge in some rich foods - and we found a risotto dish that falls in line with that.

It's been on the menu for years at Walk Street.

The restaurant is located at 176 Seventh Street in Garden City.

Walk Street Risotto


1/2 small shallot diced fine
1/2 oz. cooked chopped fine pancetta
1/2 oz. kernel corn {blanched}
1oz. diced shrimp
3/4 cup half cooked risotto (use your favorite recipe for basic risotto)
1/2 cup chicken stock
1/2 cup heavy cream
2 tablespoon grated parmesan cheese
salt and pepper to taste
finish dish with drizzle of truffle oil

Sauté shallot in oil over medium heat, then add the pancetta, corn and shrimp. Cook for several minute to make sure the pancetta and shrimp cook through?then add the risotto, cream and cheese. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. And drizzle with truffle oil just before plating.
