125g Mascarpone
6 cups vegetable or chicken stock
pinch of saffron
2 tbsp olive oil
3 shallots (diced)
2 cloves garlic (crushed)
2 cups Arborio rice
salt and pepper
1/2 cup dry white wine
1 lemon (zested and juiced)
250g cooked prawns
2tbsp parsley (chopped)


1 In a medium saucepan, heat the stock and saffron over medium-low heat. Cover and keep warm.
2 In a large frying pan, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat. Add the shallots and garlic and cook until softened. Add the rice and cook until translucent, for about 1 minute. Season with salt and pepper.
3 Add the wine and cook until evaporated. Add a ladle-full of stock at a time and cook until evaporated, stirring frequently. Add the last of the stock and the lemon zest, and cook until evaporated. Add the prawns to heat through. Taste the rice to see if it’s done. If needed, add additional stock and cook for a bit longer. It should have a bite to it, but be creamy in texture.
4 Remove from heat and stir in lemon juice and mascarpone to make the risotto extra creamy. Season with extra parsley and serve hot.
