Category: Italian, Seafood, Rice

 Ingredients List

  • 1 lb Shrimp (unshelled)
  • 1 Bay leaf
  • Celery leaves (A few)
  • 6 Peppercorns
  • Salt, to taste
  • Saffron threads (A few)
  • 3 3/4 c Water
  • 6 tb Butter, divided
  • 1 Onion, chopped
  • 1 Clove garlic, crushed
  • 2 c Italian Arborio rice
  • 1 1/4 c Dry white wine
  • 2 Zucchini, cut into thin
  • -strips
  • 6 oz Oyster mushrooms, cut into
  • -pieces
  • 2 tb Chopped fresh parsley
  • 1/4 c Grated Parmesan cheese,
  • -divided


Rinse and peel the shrimp; set aside. Rinse the shrimp shells, then put
them in a saucepan along with the bay leaf, celery leaves, peppercorns,
salt, saffron, and water. Bring to a boil, then simmer for 20 minutes.
Strain and reserve the stock.

In a heavy large saucepan or skillet, melt 3 tablespoons of the butter; add
the onion and garlic. Cook for about 5 minutes or until softened but not
colored. Add the rice and stir to coat all the grains with butter. Add 1/3
of the reserved stock and bring to a boil, then simmer, uncovered, until
the stock is absorbed. Stirring, gradually add more stock and the wine
until it has all been absorbed and the rice is cooked; this will take about
20 minutes.

In a separate pan, melt the remaining butter, add the shrimp, zucchini, and
mushrooms; cook for 3 or 4 minutes. Fold the mixture into the rice along
with the rice and half of the cheese. Taste and add salt, if needed.

Serve piping hot, sprinkled with the remaining cheese.
