Shrimp Risotto
Shrimp Risotto
(Risotto Con Gamberi)
 
 
Ingredients:

11 oz (300 grams) large raw shrimp
12 oz (350 grams) risotto rice
1 onion
2 cloves
1 celery heart
1 carrot
3 oz (80 grams) butter
Salt

Directions:

Bring 1 and 3/4 pints (1 liter) salted water to a boil.

Add the shrimp and cook for 2-3 minutes.

Remove with a slotted spoon and peel and devein when cool enough to handle, reserving the shells.

Crush the shells in a mortar with a pestle.

Place the onion with the cloves and add to the shrimp cooking liquid with the celery and carrot.

Bring to a boil and simmer for about 30 minutes.

Remove and discard the cloves.

Transfer the contents of the pan to a food processor.

Add the crushed shells and process to a puree.

Melt 2 oz (50 grams) of the butter in a saucepan.

Stir in the rice and cook, stirring, until the grains are coated in butter.

Continue adding the puree, a ladleful at a time, and stirring until each addition has been absorbed (18-20 minutes).
