"A delicious concoction of prawns and pine nuts with a hint of chile pepper. The addition of carrots give a little added crunch and color. If you take your time and stir constantly, you'll end up with the creamiest, tastiest risotto ever!" — phuong

This was my first time making risotto and it came out just perfect! I added mushrooms instead of carrots though and crushed red pepper instead of a minced chile pepper and it was still delicious. Thanks!
Well, the rice flavor was great but I wasn't crazy about the flavor combination of the carrots and, especially the black olives. Maybe it would be better with Kalamata olives? I definitely like the idea of spinach and mushroom instead. I agree that a little less butter would probably work fine.
this is a delicious risotto.. very creamy and the hint of spice is great.
I also didnt use the carrots or the black olives but used mushrooms and added fresh spinach at the end
I made this the first time I ever made or had risotto. I thought it was delicious. Since, I've had risotto at fine dining restaurants. Mine was every bit as good as theirs. Since I've also made other risotto recipes and I still prefer this one. If I could give it more stars, I would.
great recipe! i did change up the veggies a bit just because of what i had on hand - but this was yummy!
Made as instructed, except didn't have chili-garlic butter, so added a little chili powder and garlic with the butter. Also threw in some spinach at the end. Whole family enjoyed it - even the kids.
Great Recipe! Didn't have chili-garlic butter or a fresh chili so added a clove of garlic and a shake of Sweet Chili Sauce!
