Risotto is a versatile dish, amenable to a variety of ingredients and interpretations. Over the years I have made risotto with roasted acorn squash, asparagus, green peas, wild mushrooms, butternut squash, shrimp, scallops, spinach, pumpkin, and even beets. It is up to your mood and imagination.

Recipe Ingredients for Shrimp & Mushroom Risotto

2 1/2 tablespoons canola oil
1/2 yellow onion, diced
1/2 red bell pepper, diced
8 ounces mushrooms, sliced
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 1/2 cups Arborio rice
1/2 cup cream sherry (plus 2 tablespoons)
7 cups low-sodium chicken broth or vegetable broth, warmed
24 shrimp, peeled, deveined, thawed
2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
2 tablespoons butter
1 1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan (Salt & freshly ground black pepper to taste )

Recipe Directions for Shrimp & Mushroom Risotto

  1. Heat the oil in a large saucepan. Add the onion, bell pepper, mushrooms, and garlic and saute for about 7 minutes. Add the rice and cook over medium heat, stirring, for 4 minutes.

  2. Add the cup sherry and 2 cups of the broth, stirring well; cook for about 8 minutes. Add another 2 to 3 cups of broth and cook, stirring, for 5 minutes more; add the renaming broth, 2 tablespoons of sherry, and the shrimp and cook for 12 to 14 minutes more, stirring, until the rice and shrimp are tender.

  3. Stir in the parsley, butter and cheese. Remove from the heat and season with salt and pepper to taste. Let stand for a few minutes and then serve in large pasta bowls. Pass any extra shredded Parmesan at the table.

  4. Yield: Serves 6

  5. Suggestions: If you prefer a thin risotto, use more broth. Hot water can be substituted for half the broth. Dry white wine also works (in place of sherry).
