Risotto with Shrimp and Spinach-7-poppopcooks.com

You google Risotto and you come up with tons of different ways to prepare this traditional Italian dish. If you want an uncomplicated, all in one pot, quick and easy meal, this Shrimp Risotto with Spinach recipe can be it. You can give it lots of variations and ingredient substitutions like leftover rotisserie chicken and broccoli florets. The list goes on and on to include anything you might have on hand.

It’s easy. Chop up the onion. Put a saucepan on at medium high and add the olive oil then the onion, salt and pepper. Stir up the onions a few times as they cook and when they start to get translucent add the rice. Stir it up to get the rice all coated with the oil. Put in the wine and take a few sips yourself. You deserve it. Mix it all up and when the wine comes to a simmer lower the heat enough to just maintain a fast simmer. Stir it a few times as the wine reduces until the surface of the wine is even with the top of the rice.

Add about half of the broth and stir pretty regularly. When the broth has reduced and the rice has absorbed it to the point that the surface of the broth is even with the top of the rice add half of the remaining broth. Repeat the routine then nibble a few grains to see if it needs to cook a little more. If so add the remaining broth and do it again. If you run out of broth and the rice isn’t done a little hot tap water will be okay to finish with. When the rice is soft on the outside but chewy on the inside add the shrimp and the spinach.

Stir it a few times as the shrimp cooks and the spinach wilts. When the shrimp is opaque add the grated parmesan and mix it in. Spoon your Shrimp Risotto with Spinach into warm bowls. Top with some grated parmesan cheese and enjoy the rest of that white wine.

Recipe Notes

A suggestion; the hotter the broth is the faster the risotto will get done. Some cooks have it simmering in a pot next to the risotto.

Also,,if you like the idea of dipping bread into the extra liquid just have a little extra left in the finished product. You are better off with a little too much liquid than too little. It helps avoid the rice sticking to the bottom of the pot and having your risotto turn out too sticky.

Honey Soy Sauce Shrimp-15 minutes

Honey Soy Sauce Shrimp-4-poppopcooks.com

You can go with the basic 4 ingredient Honey Soy Sauce Shrimp recipe and it will be great. You can do this with other kinds of fish or with chicken or beef.

After you get the honey, soy sauce and salt in the bowl you might be tempted to go a little further. Today I added some lemon juice, sesame seeds, minced garlic and a wee pinch of cayenne pepper. You don’t have to do any of the extras. If you want to keep it just the honey, soy sauce and salt it will still become a favorite.

Put the shrimp in a separate bowl and drizzle just enough of the sauce to coat them. Toss the shrimp in the sauce a little bit.

Put a skillet on at medium high and eyeball enough olive oil to coat the bottom. Let it get hot before you add the shrimp. Then spread the shrimp out in the pan so that they are all laying on their sides, not piled on top of each other. Cook for just one minute a side and then add the remaining sauce.

Stir the shrimp in the hot sauce then remove them to the plates and drizzle the sauce on  them. There you have your Honey Soy Sauce Shrimp. Garnish with a little bit of dried parsley or grated parmesan, if you want.

It all happens so fast that we almost always just go for “baked” potatoes in the microwave and some basic salad. Or another veggie choice is something microwave friendly like frozen broccoli or peas sharing space in the microwave with the potatoes. We had a chilled Santa Margherita Pinot Grigio to go with our Honey Soy Sauce Shrimp and it was great.
