Talk about a powerhouse: every element of this recipe goes above and beyond in fitting in as much lush, decadent flavor as can be contained on a plate. It starts with scallops, pan-seared until they’re gloriously golden and tender. They’re perched on top of a mushroom risotto, which has some seriously luxuriant overtones thanks to the addition of truffle oil. A drizzle of brown butter sauce ties everything together in nutty, rich splendor—one bite, and you’ll be hooked.

Wash and dry all produce. Bring 5 cups water and stock concentrates to a boil in a medium pot. Once boiling, reduce heat to low. Meanwhile, slice garlic as thinly as possible. Halve, peel, and mince shallot.

Heat a drizzle of oil in a large pan over medium heat. Add shallot and garlic. Cook, tossing, until softened, 1-2 minutes. Add rice and stir until translucent, 1-2 minutes. Add stock to pan ½ cup at a time, stirring after each addition. Allow rice to absorb most of the stock before adding more. Continue until al dente and creamy, 30-35 minutes.

Trim mushrooms, then cut into ¼-inch-thick slices. Zest lemon until you have 1 tsp zest, then cut into quarters. Pick parsley leaves from stems and roughly chop. Heat a drizzle of oil in another large pan over medium-high heat. Add mushrooms and season with salt and pepper. Cook, tossing, until crisp and browned, 4-7 minutes.

Remove mushrooms from pan and set aside. Wipe out pan and heat a large drizzle of oil in it over medium-high heat. Pat scallops dry with a paper towel and season generously all over with salt and pepper. Add to pan and cook until browned and just firm, 3-5 minutes per side. Remove from pan and set aside, covered, to keep warm. Wipe out pan again and place over medium heat.

Melt 2 TBSP butter in same pan. Stir often until butter starts to brown, about 3 minutes. Stir in half the parsley and a squeeze of lemon juice, then immediately pour into a small bowl. Once risotto is al dente, stir in mushrooms, lemon zest, Parmesan, 1 TBSP truffle oil (we sent more), 1 TBSP butter, and a squeeze of lemon juice.
