Crab Risotto with Fine Herbs - Pair with La Crema Chardonnay

La Crema Monterey Chardonnay offers an elegant contrast to the flavors in this dish. Crisp and cool as it cuts through the richness of the risotto, while building off the herb and mineral notes found in this dish. There could not be an easier recipe for success. Look for very fresh crab to enhance the seafood flavor, while also accentuating the lemon peel aromas of this Central Coast wine.


  • 1 Tbsp oil
  • ½ cup onion, finely chopped
  • 2 cups arborio rice
  • ¾ cup La Crema Monterey Chardonnay
  • 3 cups light chicken stock, at a simmer
  • 6 oz. shelled crab meat
  • 2 Tbsp fresh parsley, minced
  • 2 Tbsp fresh chives, minced
  • 1 Tbsp fresh chervil, minced
  • 1 Tbsp fresh tarragon, minced
  • 2 Tbsp whole butter
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • Salt to taste


Heat oil in a medium sauce pan over medium-high heat. Add onion and stir frequently. Sauté until onions are translucent, approximately 2 minutes. Add rice and sauté for 2 minutes, stirring constantly. Add wine and cook until evaporated. Begin adding simmering broth, 1/2 cup at a time, and stir constantly until the broth has been absorbed. Total cooking time is approximately 20 minutes or until rice is tender.

Add the crab and remove from the heat. Stir in the herbs, butter and lemon juice. Season to taste and serve immediately.
