Before you start
A pressure-cooker will reduce the risotto cooking time to 7 min. The quantities given here are based on this recipe served as main course.
- Finely chop the onion. Clean the asparagus then cut it into small pieces (about 1 cm).
- Heat the broth in a small saucepan on the stove or in a microwave oven. Keep it warm while cooking the risotto (about 20 min).
- Heat the oil in a large skillet or saucepan. Sauté the onion 2-3 min, until it becomes translucent. Add the rice and asparagus. Cook 1-2 min, with constant stirring, until the rice grains are well toasted and translucent.
- Cook the risotto, using the warmed broth until the rice is creamy but still al dente.
- Meanwhile, 3 or 4 min before the end of the risotto cooking, heat the shrimp in a small pot of boiling water. Drain the shrimp then add to the risotto. Remove the risotto pan from the heat and let stand for 2 min. Season with salt (not much if the broth is salty) and pepper to taste. Serve.
