In a medium saucepan over medium heat, heat the olive oil. Add the garlic and sauté for 1 minute. Stir in the onion and sauté until soft.
Add ½ cup of arborio rice and sauté for about 3-4 minutes.
Pour in one cup of the fish stock and stir until it is absorbed into the rice. Repeat this process slowly until all of the rice and fish stock has been incorporated.
Stir in the white wine and Parmesan cheese. Continue to cook, stirring constantly, until the white wine has been absorbed and a creamy consistency has been reached. It is important to keep stirring so the rice does not stick to the bottom of the pan.
Stir in the lobster meat, parsley, chives and paprika. Season the lobster risotto to taste.
Serve the lobster risotto hot. Enjoy!
