I share my passion for cooking with my mom. She’s always looking for recipes, and tells me all about the ones she finds in newspapers or magazines, or she will surprise us with a delicious dinner when we go visit her on weekends. It’s amazing to see how many dishes she can cook, always looking for the easiest way to prepare each recipe. There’s no greater joy for me than being able to share my love for cooking with her. Together, we relive family memories and discover culinary secrets.
Today, I’m sharing the recipe for this delicious shrimp risotto, which is a traditional dish of Italian cuisine, from the northwest part of the country. My mom taught me how to make it and, ever since, it has become a regular dish in my kitchen. It is made with Arborio rice, a type of short-grain rice, and takes broth (beef, chicken, fish or vegetable), until you have a creamy consistency. It’s one of the most popular ways to cook rice in Italy. Serve it with good white wine.
