Cooking Instructions
Instructions for 2 people (double for 4)
1 Amalfi Risotto With Jumbo Prawns

Boil a kettle

Peel and finely chop the brown onion[s]

Grate the courgette[s]

2 Amalfi Risotto With Jumbo Prawns

Heat a wide-based pan (preferably non-stick) with a generous drizzle of olive oil and a knob of butter over a medium heat

Once the pan is hot and the butter has melted, add the chopped brown onion and grated courgette with a generous pinch of salt and cook for 6-7 min or until softened, stirring often

 

3 Amalfi Risotto With Jumbo Prawns

Meanwhile, dissolve the Knorr vegetable stock cube[s] in 700ml [1.4L] boiled water

Peel and finely chop (or grate) the garlic

Once the onions and courgette have softened, add the chopped garlic and cook for 2-3 min or until fragrant

 

4 Amalfi Risotto With Jumbo Prawns

Once fragrant, add the arborio rice and cook for 1 min to coat the grains in the oil

Tip: Add a drizzle more oil if your pan is looking a little dry

Add the stock, a ladle at a time, stirring continuously for 20-25 min or until all the stock is absorbed and the rice is almost cooked with a slight bite

 

5 Amalfi Risotto With Jumbo Prawns

Once the rice is almost cooked, stir through the jumbo prawns and cook for 3-4 min or until cooked

Tip: Your prawns are cooked when they have turned opaque

6 Amalfi Risotto With Jumbo Prawns

Peel half of the Italian hard cheese with a vegetable peeler to create cheese shavings, then grate the remaining cheese 

Zest the lemon[s] (try to grate lightly with a micro-plane or sharp box grater and avoid grating the white pith, as this is very bitter!) and set aside for garnish

Juice the lemons[s]

7 Amalfi Risotto With Jumbo Prawns

Once the jumbo prawns are cooked, add the lemon juice, grated Italian hard cheese and a knob of butter and stir to combine

Season generously with black pepper and add the lemon zest – this is your Amalfi risotto with jumbo prawns

Dress the pea shoots lightly in olive oil
