Ingredients

How to make it

  • Shrimp

  • Combine olive oil, lemon juice, garlic, salt & pepper in a bowl. Mix well. Add shrimp & toss. Let sit for about 10-15 minutes, tossing about 2-3 times.
  • Heat broiler. Broil shrimp for about 2 minutes on each side or until just cooked. Serve over risotto.
  • Risotto

  • Bring broth to a boil in a small saucepan, then reduce heat to low & keep warm.
  • Heat olive oil in a medium saucepan/skillet over medium heat. Add leek, season with salt, and cook about 4 minutes - until softened - stirring occasionally.
  • Add rice. Stir to coat & toast for 1-3 minutes. Add wine and cook, stirring, until no liquid remains, about 2-3 minutes. Begin adding broth 1/4 cup at a time, stirring after each addition until most of the liquid is absorbed before adding more. This process takes about 20 minutes in total. Rice should be creamy (not mushy) and slightly firm in the center. If your rice hasn't become tender enough by this point, add more liquid by 1/4 cup measures using same technique - may use more stock or water. Stir in Parmesan and pea shoots, mix well and remove from heat.
  • ***Note: Many people have expressed that they are unfamiliar with pea shoots so I decided to include more info. Hopefully this will help you find them b/c they are delicious! The extra photos included of the packaging and shoots are not my property, found with a Google search & borrowed just to help illustrate further. I came across this story which I thought might be of interest: http://www.canadianliving.com/food/cooking_school/photo_gallery__summer_pea_primer_plus_recipes-1.php#top_nav_slide. According to this, what I know as pea shoots are pea sprouts - though I have had what they consider pea shoots as well. Both are great. Here's another page to visit: http://www.peashoots.com. If you don't live in Canada or GB or don't have a TJ's nearby, you may find these lovely things at an Asian food market or farmers market. Best of luck!
  • I also found this story in my search and found it so interesting I just had to include it: http://abcnews.go.com/blogs/headlines/2010/08/pea-sprout-removed-from-massachusetts-mans-lung.
