Instructions
  1. Bring stock and ½ cup sherry wine to simmer in medium pot. Reduce heat; keep hot.
  2. Melt 2 tablespoons butter in a large skillet over medium/high heat. Add the chopped garlic cloves, lemon juice, chili flakes and peeled shrimp. Sauté until shrimp begins to turn pink, about 5 minutes, then pour in the other ½ cup of sherry wine. Simmer until shrimp are just cooked through; about 2 minutes. Drain shrimp, reserving cooking liquid.
  3. Melt 1 tablespoon butter in same skillet over medium heat. Add shallots, mushrooms and peas; sauté for about 5 minutes until cooked. Stir the risotto into the shallot, mushrooms and peas; stir to coat, about 2 minutes. Add 2 cups broth mixture from the medium pot. Simmer until liquid is absorbed, stirring often. Continue adding broth mixture 1 cup at a time, stirring often and simmering until liquid is absorbed before adding more, about 15 minutes until it’s all gone. Pour the risotto mixture back into the medium pot and stir in reserved shrimp cooking liquid, lemon zest and warmed half and half. Cook until risotto is just tender and mixture is creamy, about 10 minutes longer.
  4. Season risotto to taste with salt and pepper. Transfer to bowls, top with the shrimp and sprinkle with parsley and Parmesan cheese.

Sandi Grigg

Growing up in a small town in the foothills of North Carolina and attending the University of North Carolina at Charlotte, I always dreamed of living on the coast. After earning my degree in Marketing/Branding I moved to Wilmington and the life my spouse and I have created for ourselves is a blessing beyond words. Together we enjoy kayaking the Cape Fear, fishing the shores of Carolina Beach and picking up seashells and shark’s teeth. At home, I love to cook and write recipes, play with our dogs, and take on DIY home improvement endeavors. Being a part of the Carolina Marketing Company team has shown me that you really can enjoy your job. I am truly grateful to have a career I love in the city I aspired to be in. Life is grand!
