In a medium saucepan, combine the clam broth and water and bring to a simmer. Keep warm.
In a large saucepan, heat the olive oil. Add the onion, season with salt and pepper and cook over moderate heat, stirring, until softened, about 5 minutes. Add the rice and cook for 1 minute, stirring to thoroughly coat. Crumble the saffron into the wine and add it to the rice. Cook, stirring until the wine is absorbed. Add 1 cup of the warm clam juice and cook over moderate heat, stirring constantly, until nearly absorbed. Continue adding the juice 1/2 cup at a time, and stirring constantly until it is nearly absorbed between additions. The risotto is done when the rice is al dente and suspended in a thick, creamy sauce, about 20 minutes total. Season with salt and pepper.
Melt the butter in a large skillet. Add the shallot and cook over moderate heat until softened, about 2 minutes. Add the shrimp and crab and cook until just heated through. Scrape the seafood into the risotto and stir in the parsley and mascarpone. Serve immediately.
Fragrant, substantial Soave.

Review Body: I tried this recipe but changed up the clam juice for crab juice. I bought a dungeoness crab and washed and scrubbed it thoroughly then I steamed it twice; to ensure the water was clean. This recipe is lacking a lot of flavor as Anna noted below. I did modify a lot of it. Crab juice, 8oz of butter (melting 1table spoon in everytime I am adding stock) I used restaurant quality prawns and added salt and pepper each time I added something.
Taste as you go, this recipe was amazing just modify it the way you like, ALWAYS taste your food before you serve it and make the last minute changes. I loved this and my dinner party enjoyed it too. My friend who is a chef told me he was impressed and my boyfriend gave it a 10/10. I always get 7 and 8's from him but this one was a 10.
What a hit!

Review Body: This recipe has 0 flavor. I had to add so much lemon, salt, garlic, spices so that it wouldn't taste like cardboard. Just awful!!!!
