Gambas risotto

Recipe: Risotto of prawns

Recipe for risotto of prawns, with raw prawns you can cook the shells in a broth with white wine, your rice will be fragrant and tasty as you wish. I like all the risottos, but I particularly like the Parmesan and the mascarpone which come to enhance this risotto. Risotto takes a few minutes to prepare, it also requires that you be present throughout the cooking, but frankly the result is worth the effort.
