Artichoke and Shrimp Risotto

artichoke-shrimp-risotto-vertical-a-600

The risotto rice cooking process can take anywhere from 20 to 30 minutes, depending on the type of risotto rice you are using. You stir gently, almost constantly, throughout the cooking process, slowly adding liquid as the rice absorbs it. The stirring not only helps keep the rice from sticking to the bottom of the pan, it loosens up starches from the rice which helps create a creamy texture to the risotto. A good risotto is creamy without ever having to add cream! As the risotto comes close to being done, you add chopped artichoke hearts and some paprika rubbed sautéed shrimp, and it’s ready, your patience rewarded. Enjoy!
