Quick Risotto with Garlic Shrimp
Risotto is synonymous with long, slow, arduous cooking. A new approach was long overdue.
Why This Recipe Works
We parcooked the rice for our Quick Risotto with Garlic Shrimp in the microwave before moving it to the stovetop. This cut down on the cooking time dramatically, and also eliminated much of the stirring. Medium- or short-grain rice worked almost as well as Arborio for this recipe, though the finished dish was slightly less creamy. Extra-large shrimp held up better than smaller ones, which tended to overcook.
