Primi: Risotto con Calamri e Pomodoro "X"

Italians don't use Parmesan with fish-style risottos or pasta.
For one simple reason - to stop you from pouring your risotto into the fucking bin

The tender calamari was excellent, the Vermouth and vegetable consomme made it really aromatic and the arborio was creamilicious, but i felt like it wasn't "pomodoro-ed"(tomato-y) enough.

Because i am such a lazy fuck, having to know from the start that a tin of tomato wasn't enough but still believing it would do fine cause at that point of time i felt like my bum was too heavy to make it down the building to get a god damned 400g tin of chopped tomatoes, i felt like the risotto was a tad away from perfection.

Getting the calamari was a bitch, they were sold out everywhere, doesn't really happen normally. Red Algae?
