Easy Mushroom and Asparagus Risotto in Seafood Stock
I’m sorry I don’t have a picture with better table styling, because this was cooked over the stove without any planning and that evening, I was quite frustrated! Having cooked the awesome-nest risotto I’ve ever cooked (I’ve only cooked it once) last year, I was dying to go at it again but wasn’t quite prepared to ladle boiling stock over rice every few minutes until they were cooked. And so I set out to do what I thought was a clever thing. MAKE RICECOOKER RISOTTO. I had everything planned. The amount of rice, the stock, the asparagus, the mushrooms, the timing. Everything. Except the ricecooker.
Shrimp and Mushroom Risotto with Italian Herbs and White Wine Sauce
I have cooked many dishes and have done many experiments, substituted many ingredients and discovered many flavours.. but if there’s one dish that truly left me mind-blown, it is this. I am almost afraid to cook this again, for fear of not being able to replicate the flavour a second time. The umami was something out of what my palette could recognise, and it is indeed, a welcomed surprise. I decided to include this not-that-budget Shrimp & Mushroom Risotto recipe because it’ll still cost you less than what you’d pay for risotto outside! :) Plus, the extreme satisfaction you get after the meal is completed? It’s priceless! Makes 2-3 servings…
