Shrimp Ingredients

  • 1 pound frozen shrimp deveined and shelled
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 2 teaspoons dried tarragon

Risotto Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 onion chopped
  • 3/4 cup Arborio rice
  • 1/4 cup dry white wine
  • 2 cups low-sodium chicken broth
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground pepper
  • 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese grated


  • Thaw the shrimp. To do this, place the frozen shrimp in a medium mixing bowl with a strainer inside it. Let the shrimp thaw in cold water for about 10 minutes. Drain the water and refill it again, for another 10 minutes.

Make the Risotto

  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. In an oven safe Dutch oven (I used a Le Cruset), heat the Risotto olive oil to medium-high heat. Add the onion and stir until the onions are soft and translucent, about 4 minutes.
  • Add the rice and stir to coat in the olive oil. Stir in the wine and cook until the wine has evaporated, about 2 minutes. Stir in the chicken broth, salt and pepper. Bring to a boil.
  • Once boiling, remove from the stove. Cover and transfer to the oven. Bake for about 25 minutes.

Make the Shrimp

  • While the risotto is cooking, you can marinate and cook the shrimp
  • Once thawed and drained, place in a large ziplock bag. Add the rest of the ingredients. Close the bag and make sure to completely coat all the shrimp with the goodness.
  • Marinate about 20 minutes.
  • In a large non-stick saute pan, place the shrimp and marinade and cook, on medium-high heat for about 5 minutes, or until fully cooked.
  • When the risotto is cooked, remove from the oven. Stir and add 1/2 cup of water and the Parmesan cheese. Stir to combine.
  • To serve, place the risotto on a plate and add the shrimp on top.
