We never try to show off in the kitchen, but sometimes the recipes themselves demand applause. This creamy shrimp risotto is one of those.

Ingredients List

  1. 2 Tbsp. (30 mL) Becel® Original margarine, divided
  2. 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  3. 3/4 lb. (350 g) uncooked medium shrimp
  4. 1 cup (250 mL) thinly sliced red bell pepper
  5. 1 cup (250 mL) thinly sliced green bell pepper
  6. 1 medium onion, chopped
  7. 1 cup (250 mL) uncooked long grain rice
  8. 1/3 cup (75 mL) dry white wine or water
  9. 1 Knorr® OXO® 25% Less Salt Chicken Bouillon Sachet *
  10. 2 1/4 cups (550 mL) water *
  11. 1/4 tsp. (1 mL) ground black pepper
  12. 1/4 cup (60 mL) grated Pecorino Romano cheese

Directions

1. Melt 15 mL Becel® Original margarine in large nonstick saucepan over medium-high heat and cook 1 clove garlic with shrimp, stirring occasionally, until shrimp turn pink, about 3 minutes. Remove shrimp from pan.

2. Stir in bell peppers and cook 2 minutes; remove from pan. Add remaining Becel® Original margarine and cook remaining garlic and onion until onions are almost tender, about 3 minutes. Stir in uncooked rice and cook, stirring frequently, 1 minute. Add wine and stir until almost absorbed. Stir in OXO blended with water and black pepper.

3. Bring to a boil, stirring frequently. Cover and simmer over low heat 20 minutes or until rice is tender.

4. Stir in cheese. Return shrimp and bell peppers to pan; heat through. Garnish, if desired, with chopped parsley.
