Saffron Shrimp Risotto

Saffron is a very special ingredient, that is often found in risottos. That is because not only does it flavor it, but it also gives the risotto a beautiful color. For this recipe, we've paired saffron and rice with some fresh shrimp, and we've made an extra creamy risotto, with lots of butter and parmesan.

I guess I’ve always had a passion for cooking ever since I was a kid when I was mom’s little helper in the kitchen. Even though I wasn’t actually cooking, I was a picky eater, and I focused on bringing more flavor to her dishes, by adding extra herbs and spices I felt might enrich it. Time has passed, and I haven’t changed that much: I am now my girlfriend’s helper.
