Risotto with Prawns

Dinner tonight was influenced by Mary.  Of  course dinner is often influenced by her.  If you haven’t visited Mary’s blog Once Upon A Plate you are in for a visual treat.
Mary posted today about an  Oven Baked Parmesan Risotto.  A little different than a traditional stove top risotto but delicious all the same.   I had nothing planned for dinner but when I saw Mary’s post everything fell into place.

I pulled a container of local spotted prawns from the freezer.  Sauted onion in butter and olive oil,  and when they were soft added minced garlic, toss the Carnaroli rice into the pot, stirred to coat the rice, added homemade turkey broth, covered and put the pot in the oven.   When the rice was minutes from done, I tossed in the prawns and back into the oven for about 4 minutes.   Added the butter and parmesan cheese, a gentle stir and our Risotto was ready to eat.

This was an amazingly easy dinner to put together.  A one pot dinner.  I  would definitely make this again.  Lots of options for changing it up.  Maybe adding Italian Sausage or Asparagus, peas, clams, etc……

  5. I've been wanting to try this technique for awhile now. You and Mari have me sold! Looks absolutely delicious and a little less time-intensive than a traditional risotto. Beautiful, Ann.
