  1. Heat 2 tablespoons oil in a large skillet over medium heat; cook and stir onions until light brown and tender, about 20 minutes.
  2. Bring chicken broth to a boil in a pot; reduce heat to low and keep at a simmer.
  3. Heat remaining 2 tablespoons oil in a large, flat-bottom pan over medium-high heat. Cook and stir shallot and garlic in the hot oil until fragrant, about 2 minutes. Add Arborio rice to shallot mixture; cook and stir until rice begins to brown, about 3 minutes. Add wine and cook for 1 minute.
  4. Stir 1 cup chicken broth into rice mixture; cook, stirring constantly, until broth is absorbed. Repeat adding broth, 1 cup at a time, until all the broth is used, stirring constantly until broth is absorbed each time, about 30 minutes.
  5. Mix honey into onions and cook 5 minutes more.
  6. Stir butter into rice mixture until melted. Add cream and stir until rice mixture thickens, about 3 minutes. Add paprika and cayenne pepper; stir well. Add sherry and mix well. Stir lobster meat into rice mixture and cook until heated through, about 3 minutes. Mix Parmesan cheese into rice mixture until melted. Add onion mixture and mix well; season with salt and pepper.

I subbed shrimp for lobster. No offense, but lobster is too expensive for this kind of a recipe. I cut the onions into slices and cartelized them with a little balsamic. Then I took the onions o...

We did not like it.

Excellent recipe....the only thing I would caution people on is the cayenne pepper, even at a teaspoon, it is really HOT. I would cut it in half if I made it again. I love things really HOT s...

I used half and half in place of light cream. I will make this recipe again with very little cayenne pepper as I found it overwhelming. (I didn’t think so much as a teaspoon would, but it did.) ...
