Wash produce before use

1

Prep and cook the shellfish

For the shrimp or jumbo shrimp:
  • Rinse the shrimp, then drain on a paper-towel-lined plate and pat dry. Season with salt and pepper.
In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 to 2 teaspoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add the shrimp and cook, turning once, until firm and cooked through, 1 to 2 minutes per side for regular shrimp, 2 to 3 minutes per side for jumbo shrimp. Transfer to a plate and sprinkle with the sumac. Do not clean the pan.

For the scallops:
  • Pat the scallops dry with a paper towel; season generously with salt and pepper.
In a large frying pan over high heat, warm 1 to 2 teaspoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add the scallops and cook without turning until golden brown on one side and starting to turn opaque, 2 to 4 minutes. Turn and continue cooking for about 30 seconds for translucent or 1 to 2 minutes for opaque. Transfer to a plate and sprinkle with the sumac. Do not clean the pan.

While the shellfish cooks, prepare the shallots and mushrooms.

2

Cook the “risotto”

  • Peel and finely chop the shallots.
  • Thinly slice the mushrooms.
In the same pan used for the shellfish, warm 2 to 3 teaspoons oil over medium heat until hot but not smoking. Add the shallots and mushrooms and cook, stirring occasionally, until starting to soften, 2 to 3 minutes. Add the cauliflower “rice,” season with salt and pepper, and cook, stirring occasionally, until the “rice” is tender, 6 to 8 minutes. Stir in ¼ cup [½ cup] white wine (from your pantry), if using, and cook, scraping up any browned bits from the bottom of the pan, until the liquid has mostly evaporated, 1 to 2 minutes.
When the “risotto” is almost done, prepare the mint.

3

Prep the mint; finish the “risotto”

  • Strip the mint leaves from the stems; coarsely tear the leaves. Set aside half for garnish.
To the pan with the cauliflower “rice,” add the peas, sweet pea pistou, Parmesan, and ¼ cup [½ cup] water and cook, scraping up any browned bits from the bottom of the pan, until the liquid has thickened, 2 to 3 minutes. Remove from the heat, stir in the shellfish and half the mint, and season to taste with salt and pepper.

Serve

Transfer the cauliflower “risotto” to individual bowls, garnish with the remaining mint, and serve.
