Creamy risotto with marinated shrimps

Here’s a version of risotto between land and sea, cooked and raw: a mixture of two kinds of cheese, shrimps almost natural and lemon scents.

COOKING TIME: 15 minutes


  • 350g rice
  • 2l vegetable stock
  • 150g crescenza cheese
  • 32 shrimps (oil, vinegar and lime to marinate)
  • Almond flakes
  • 2 shallots, minced
  • Grated Parmigiano Reggiano


  1. Clean the shrimps. Marinate in oil, salt, pepper lime and a few drops of vinegar.
  2. Bring the stock to boil.
  3. In a casserole, sauté the minced shallots with some olive oil. Add the rice, toast it well and simmer with white wine until reduced.
  4. Add the stock a little at a time and cook for about 15 minutes.
  5. Stir in the crescenza cheese and Parmesan.
  6. Add a small amount of lemon zest and a few drops of its juice.
  7. To serve, add the marinated shrimp (well drained from the marinading) and some almond flakes.

The Chef’s Suggestion

For the best marination, start steeping the shrimps a few hours before cooking the risotto or, if you have some time, the day before.
