Rice Cooker Lemon Shrimp Risotto Ingredients
Medium (6-cup) or large (10-cup) rice cooker
2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
5 tsp butter, divided
1 cup finely chopped onion
1 tbsp grated lemon zest
1 cup Arborio rice
1/4 cup dry white wine
3 cups chicken broth
12 medium shrimp, peeled and deveined
1 cup corn kernels (fresh or thawed frozen)
3 tbsp freshly squeezed lemon juice
1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
1 tsp salt
Finely chopped fresh parsley
Additional lemon zest
Additional freshly grated Parmesan cheese
4 to 6 lemon wedges
1. Set the rice cooker for the Quick Cook or Regular cycle. When the bottom of the pan gets hot, add oil and 3 tsp (15 mL)of the butter; let butter melt. Sauté onion for about 2 minutes or until softened. Stir in lemon zest.
2. Add rice, stirring until it’s completely coated. Cook, stirring, for about 4 minutes or until rice is mostly translucent and only a dot of white remains. Sir in wine and cook for 3 to 4 minutes or until liquid has evaporated. Stir in broth. Cover and reset for the Porridge or Regular cycle. Set a time and cook for 20 minutes, stirring 2 to 3 times.
3. When the timer goes off, fold in shrimp, corn and lemon juice. Set the timer for 5 minutes.
4. When the machine switches to Keep Warm or the timer goes off, check to see whether the risotto is al dente and the shrimp is pink and opaque. If a lot of liquid remains, stir the risotto and cook for a few more minutes. When the proper consistency is achieved, fold in the remaining butter, cheese and salt. Serve lemon shrimp risotto hot, sprinkled with parsley, lemon zest and cheese, with a lemon wedge on the side.
