The full flavours of the Med in this risotto are great with chicken, fish, or calamari – for a vegetarian option, top with cherry tomatoes and lots of Parmesan cheese!


  • 4 tablespoons Pams Pure Olive Oil
  • 280g Pams Finest Mediterranean Risotto
  • ¼ cup dry white wine (optional)
  • 3 – 3 ½ cups Pams Chicken or Vegetable Stock, heated 
  • 3/4 cup shaved Parmesan cheese
  • 3 Pams Free Range Chicken Boneless Skinless Thighs
  • Large handful Pams Baby Rocket Leaves
  • Basil leaves to garnish


  1. Heat 2 tablespoons of the olive oil in a large saucepan over a medium heat.  Add the risotto and stir to coat the grains.  Add the wine (if using) and allow to bubble and reduce.
  2. Pour in 1 cup of hot stock and stir while the rice absorbs the stock.
  3. Gradually add more stock, stirring regularly until the rice is tender – about 20 minutes.  
  4. While the risotto is cooking, heat a frying pan over a medium heat, add the remaining olive oil and cook the chicken until golden and cooked through.
  5. Stir half of the Parmesan cheese through the risotto and serve in 3 bowls with rocket leaves alongside and a chicken thigh on each.  Sprinkle with sea salt and garnish with basil leaves and extra Parmesan.


Makes 3 Servings.

Seaweed Risotto with Jumbo Prawns

Parmesan cheese and risotto typically go hand in hand, although we feel the flavour of this risotto is great with a little lemon zest instead! 


3-4 tablespoons Pams Pure Olive Oil
