    This was wonderful risotto!! My family devoured it and gave it 2 huge thumbs up. I made this as written and it turned out creamy, cheesy and oh so delicious. I had to add a little extra olive oil to brown the mushrooms in, but all cooking times were right on. I would be proud to serve this dish to company. Thank you BK, for sharing this wonderful recipe...it is definitely a keeper!! *Made for AUS/NZ swap*

    This recipe was just good for hubby and me. Used only 1 lb of shrimp...this was plenty. Did not have Marjoram on hand; substituted basil. Had to more than double the amount of chicken broth called for...recipe on back of arborio rice bag called for 4-5 cups of liquid and was more accurate. Came out a tad too salty for our tastes (possibly because of extra chicken broth).

    This recipe isn't bad, but I wouldn't rate it 5 stars. I think it calls for too much shrimp. If I make it again, I will only use one pound. The seasonings were good. Maybe next time, I will add more parmesean cheese.

    My husband and I made this together for his lunches last week. He is obsessed with shrimp fried rice, but I wanted him to get out of his box a little...so we chose risotto. He loved it! It was nice to make, the directions are very good. I found that I had to add a bit more liquid, almost 6 extra ounces. I may not have measured the rice as accurately. Great recipe!

    I just made this and all I can say is, "fabulous!". There was a bit of prep time, would have been less if I figured out the problem with my food processor sooner :) I added scallops, left out the turmeric (my husband doesn't care for it) and also added garlic salt. Simply delicious, beautiful presentation and impressive to serve.


I am a very lucky lady. I recently moved to a very small town in New Brunswick, Canada with my wonderful husband who is my best friend. Very fortunate to have a cherished son, wonderful daughter in law and adorable granddaughter and cute wee grandson. We are very blessed. A big thank you to everyone that has made my recipes... hope you enjoyed them.
