Ingredients

  • 10 extra large (26/30) shrimp
  • 1/2 cup Arborio rice
  • 1/2 cup white wine
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • 1 small onion
  • 1 1/2 cup fish stock
  • 1/4 cup cream
  • 4 Tbs butter
  • 1/4 cup chives
  • 1/2 cup shrimp bisque
  • 2 sprigs rosemary
  • olive oil

Directions

  • Cut 5 shrimp into small pieces (may substitute with uncut smaller shrimp). In medium size stock pot heat oil, add onions, garlic, stir well and let cook for about 3-4 minutes then add rice. Stir to incorporate, add wine and keep stirring until wine evaporates. Add half of fish stock and keep stirring; it is important that the rice does not stick to the pot. Allow liquid to evaporate again, add remainder of the stock, and lower heat to a simmer and cover. Simmer for 5 to 7 minutes until the rice has opened and liquid is absorbed. Remove lid and add shrimp and remaining liquid, mix well.
  • Rice should be al dente (crunchy) add the butter and cream, season with salt and let it rest for 1-2 minutes.
  • Heat a sauté pan and cook the remaining shrimp, add a little garlic and deglaze with bisque. Serve in a bowl with the risotto at the bottom with the shrimp and bisque spooned over top, garnish with rosemary sprig.
