Arborio Rice Coating



  1. 1 cup arborio rice
  2. 1 cup semolina
  3. 3 cups all-purpose flour
  4. 2 tablespoons table salt (see Chef's Note)
  5. 1 teaspoon fresh ground pepper


  1. Put the rice in a blender and grind until very fine.
  2. Shake out into a large bowl and add the semolina, flour, salt, and pepper.
  3. Toss until well blended.
  4. Store in a sealed container in the freezer to maintain maximum freshness.
  5. Tip: If you like an even crunchier texture, substitute polenta for the semolina.
