    Aroostook's Note:

    This recipe is a simple scaled down version of the Naked Chef's recipe for Prawn and Pea Risotto with Basil and Mint. Colorful, simple and the peas and shrimp make it really sweet. Comfort Food at its finest. Thanks Jamie!! =)

      This was very good, although I will use only one stalk of celery if I make it again. The shrimp also needed a little more time than the recipe indicates. It also could use a little pizzazz - maybe the basil and mint that were part of the original recipe would boost the flavor. This was my first experience making risotto, and the amount of liquid was right and the texture was exactly what it should have been. Thanks for the recipe! K

      Nice recipe! Used shallots instead of onions; asiago instead of parmesan. I cut back on the butter a couple tablespoons, and wasn't sure when to add lemon juice, so didn't. Added a few splashes vermouth along with the broth. Rich, nice risotto - thanks.
