    MNLisaB's Note:

    This is my kind of comfort food-a very untradtional but flavorful way to prepare risotto. Lots of shrimp, with garlic, ginger, pine nuts and cilantro. Risotto goes Pacific Rim! Adapted from a recipe from a local grocery store.

      You've got a winner here, MNLisaB! Outstanding comfort food! I made the recipe exactly as written and I wouldn't change a thing. I'd like to say I would cut the butter amount in half next time, but I probably won't. It was just too good. Thank you!!

      I was torn between 4 and 5 stars. If there was a 4.5 stars, this recipe would get it. I loved it's inventiveness and the wonderful burst of Asian flavor from the ginger and garlic. Since I have a mushroom-hater in our family, I substituted asparagus for mushrooms and it turned out great! Thanks for sharing!

      We loved this! My husband thinks Risotto is bland but this was was far from it and is a keeper! I substituted the mushrooms for zucchini and the shrimp for pork stips, but prepared them the same way. The zucchini provides a great colour against the red peppers.
