A simple but delicious Thermomix Seafood Risotto recipe made with marinara mix. Great for an easy midweek meal that the whole family will love!
It’s no secret that when it comes to family dinners, risotto is pretty much always at the top of my list! They’re so easy to make in the Thermomix, taste great and they always get the tick of approval!
If you’ve been visiting ThermoBliss for a while, you might know that our Thermomix Garlic Prawn Risotto is one of my all-time favourite recipes. But like anything, it’s good to change things up now and again!! And so, I switched the prawns for marinara mix and added some tomato paste… and voila! Our new Thermomix Seafood Risotto recipe is here!
You can buy marinara mix from the deli section of most supermarkets and it usually contains calamari, salmon, mussels, white fish fillets and prawns. It also has lots of parsley throughout so you get a beautiful flavour when it’s cooked.
So next time you’re after a quick and yummy family dinner, give our Thermomix Seafood Risotto a try!
