Prawn, Pea and Mint Risotto

Prawn, Pea and Mint Risotto

This is a firm favourite in the Millie Munch household. Any of my uni housemates will also tell you how frequently I threw this bad boy together.

Like my Salmon & Broccoli variation, this recipe also uses the Basic Risotto recipe for the base. The rest is pretty straight forward!

Prep Time10 mins

Total Time30 mins

Ingredients

  • 250 g prawns I prefer tiger but any will do
  • 200 g frozen peas
  • A small handful of mint leaves finely chopped
  • Salt & pepper
  • Wedge of lemon
  • Sprinkle of parmesan

Instructions

  • Once all of the stock has been absorbed (see Basic Recipe), add the prawns and peas and cook for 3-5 minutes, depending on how big your prawns are. Sprinkle over the mint, season to taste, squeeze over the lemon and sprinkle with parmesan. Serve up and munch away!

I think risotto is one of the yummiest meals going. So easy to make and super warming as we get into the colder months of winter! You can pretty much throw anything into the basic recipe so go wild and experiment, I guarantee it’ll taste good!

Basic Risotto Recipe

I’m a massive fan of risotto, so here I’ve posted my basic recipe that forms the base of all my risotto dishes.

Basic Risotto

The basic risotto recipe that forms the basis of my other risotto variations!
Prep Time10 mins
Cook Time20 mins
Total Time30 mins

Ingredients

  • One red onion
  • Two garlic cloves
  • 200 g risotto rice
  • 600 ml fish/chicken/veg stock depending on what you're adding to it
  • Sprinkle of parmesan cheese

Instructions

  • Soften the onion and garlic over a medium heat. Add the rice and hear through for 2 minutes. Add the stock a bit at a time until fully absorbed into the risotto, stirring frequently. This should take about 15 minutes. Depending on how you like your rice you can add more water to taste.

To jazz this basic recipe up see my variations with Salmon & Broccoli, Prawn & Pea, Mushroom & Spinach and Chicken and Chorizo. Risottos are pretty versatile though, you can pretty much throw anything you like in there!

Enjoy, Millie xx
