This Shrimp risotto is an exquisite, restaurant-worthy dish. It is exceptionally flavorful and every bite introduces a combination of different flavors.
If you’re in a rush, you’ve got guests coming over, but you need something nutritious and wholesome at the same time, Shrimp Risotto will come to the rescue. And kids love it too. What’s fab about it, the ingredients are usually what one has on hand; ideal for making at the last minute - but where people still ask for seconds.
Arborio rice is fabulous for using for shrimp risotto. If you like your risotto a bit more al dente, then you just add less liquid. Some people like it a bit creamier, so just add more liquids. After sautéing your onion, add in all your favorite spices like bay leaves, dried parsley, sliced red chili, some garlic cloves, black peppercorns – it’s your call.
After adding the rice to the pan, hold back on the water for a while to allow the rice to first get coated in the delicious vegetable oil or butter. It gives it a rich nutty flavor. Then you can keep on adding boiling water or even chicken stock to the pan. Always constantly and gently stir; that’s a good trick with risotto. Add the shrimps to the flavorsome chopped garlic that you fried in butter beforehand. You will later add this to the cooked rice mixture. Shrimps cook beautifully in the rice, so just be careful not to overcook.
Generally, the taste of the risotto is better when the shrimps are cut up into smaller pieces. But if you’re having guests, it looks stunning when served with whole shrimps. Time to serve. Full of flavor! Fun times, laughter, celebrations, Shrimp Risotto fits in perfectly for all occasions. Packed with vitamins, it still offers plenty of health, nutrition and well-being. Divertiti!
