Asiago Shrimp Risotto

I have mentioned before my love of the electric presser cooker I bought last year. Seriously get one!!!!!! Then you can make Asiago Shrimp Risotto in nothing flat!

If you have never made risotto before, it is a labor of love. Heating stock, sautéing onions, garlic, and rice, then adding stock cup by cup, all the while stirring constantly. The whole process is at least 30 minutes.

And unless you switch arms every so often, you will end up with a Popeye arm….lol.

This version is a quick, easy, no-stir, and delicious! This is where the pressure cooker comes in.

When….notice I didn’t say if…….you get a presser cooker, look for one with a rice setting and a sear setting. Makes all kinds of one pot meals.

Cooker set on sear, I melted butter and sautéed the onion and garlic. Added the rice and cooked for just a minute, a splash of white wine and a few more seconds…..just to cook off the alcohol. Then the chicken stock. I like stock better than broth, it has a richer flavor.

A quick stir and then the lids goes on and the cooker is set on the rice setting for 10 minutes. Once cooked let the steam out, set the cooker back to the sear feature. Add the shrimp, more stock and cook until the shrimp are opaque. Add cheese, butter and herbs……….Asiago Shrimp Risotto!!
In 20 minutes and with little effort you can have creamy, cheesy, risotto, loaded with shrimp and fresh herbs. Without any pressure except from the cooker!!!!!

Monterey Seafood Pasta

Monterey Seafood Pasta

Seafood and pasta……..a match made in heaven. There is something about seafood, that when combined with pasta and something creamy, turns those ingredients into the yummiest thing ever!

I was going through some of my old recipes……….I have tons of them……. I have been collecting them since I was in High School. Home-Ec classes were my favorite. So, along with Home-ec and influences from my Grandmother, I have always loved to cook ……..it’s my way of showing love to friends, but mostly to family.

Monterey Seafood Pasta 1

Tim’s twin brother Tom is here from the Philippines, and we wanted to stay in and have a nice dinner (we wanted to show Tom a little love) and watch our new TV……….48″ Sony with a new sound bar. So, while going through those old recipes, I found a seafood pasta dish called “Monterey Seafood Pasta”. I have no idea where I got the original recipe. After a bit of rewriting, I made it last night and the result was wonderful………creamy, a little bit spicy, with mushrooms and tomato, and of course the star of the show, the seafood. We added a loaf of crusty whole grain Italian bread and both Tim and Tom said it was a tasty pasta dish. Tim looked at me while eating and said “complements to the Chef”. If I can please my spice loving husband, it is a success!

 We never made it to the TV portion of the evening ………well, Tom did, we got him hooked on one of our favorite TV shows “Blacklist”……..but Tim and I were pooped, so off to bed we went! Can’t wait to watch our favorite show on the big screen……..maybe with a bowl of Monterey Seafood Pasta ……….:)
