Why labor over stove top risotto when Suvie can slow cook it for you instead – no stirring required! Creamy, lemony risotto is the ideal match for Suvie’s wild blue shrimp. To avoid overcooking, the shrimp are added to the Suvie in the last 15 minutes of cooking and then stirred into the risotto before serving. To keep the texture of the rice silky smooth, be sure that your broth is warmed before adding it to the rice. 

Note: If you would like to schedule this meal and do not want to wait for the broiler to cool before refrigeration, saute the garlic, shallot, olive oil, and ¼ tsp salt in a small skillet over medium heat until softened, about 6 minutes instead of broiling in step 1.
