Italian risotto is time-consuming, but PaprikaPinot shows it's worth it with a shrimp and vegetable risotto.
While risotto is more work to prepare than basic rice, it is well worth the extra effort. This creamy and decadent grain is a sponge for flavors and the slow cooking process allows the essence of the added ingredients to be fully absorbed. This risotto dish includes a variety of colorful vegetables including red bell pepper, green peas, mushrooms and leeks. The shrimp were grilled separately, however, the shrimp shells were quickly boiled with garlic and water to make a broth for the risotto. This is a great Summertime meal!
