Pan-Seared Hokkaido Scallop Risotto With Truffle Oil
Beautifully pan seared exterior gave way to tender moist flesh that remained succulent inside. The decadent plumpy Hokkaido Scallops were further enhanced by the scented truffle oil that's out of this world. Accented by Parmesan Cheese, the Japanese rice was rich in flavour with bites from the shitake mushrooms and asparagus.
