"A delicious concoction of prawns and pine nuts with a hint of chile pepper. The addition of carrots give a little added crunch and color. If you take your time and stir constantly, you'll end up with the creamiest, tastiest risotto ever!"

  1. Heat olive oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Stir in the onion and cook until softened and translucent, about 3 minutes. Stir in Arborio rice until well coated in oil; continue cooking until both the onion and rice begin to turn golden-brown, about 8 minutes.
  2. Pour in the white wine and stir until evaporated. Pour in 1/3 of the hot chicken broth; stir constantly as the risotto simmers and slowly absorbs the broth, about 8 minutes. Add half of the remaining broth, and continue stirring until absorbed, about another 8 minutes.
  3. Stir in chile-garlic butter, shrimp, carrot, pine nuts, black olives, and red chile pepper until the butter has melted. Stir in the remaining chicken broth, and again stir constantly until absorbed, about 8 minutes. Season to taste with black pepper.
  4. At this point, taste the rice; it should be slightly firm and totally delicious. If it is still a little crunchy, stir in some hot water and continue cooking until it reaches the desired tenderness.

This was my first time making risotto and it came out just perfect! I added mushrooms instead of carrots though and crushed red pepper instead of a minced chile pepper and it was still delicious. Thanks!
