Shrimp and Chorizo Risotto

Hey guys!

I already introduced here my chorizo and zucchini risotto and my red risotto with shrimps.

Today, may I suggest a mix of both recipes?… My shrimp and chorizo risotto!

It was a special request from my son who adores risotto, who adores chorizo and who adores shrimps!!

I made it all!! 3 in 1!! 😉

We will stick to the basic risotto recipe, with parmesan cheese at the end of the recipe. I chose to use a broth instead of white wine (honestly because I didn’t have any open bottle, otherwise a glass would probably have ended up in my stew pan…).

The mandatory utensils:

And iron cast stew pan, I chose a 26 cm diameter Staub

A sauce pan for the broth

And a heat resistant spatula

And that’s it!

Shall we make risotto now?

The recipe, Chef!

Serves: 5 Difficulty: Medium Price: $$
Cooking Time: 45 min


  • 300 g risotto rice
  • 750 g chorizo
  • 20 shrimps
  • 1 onion
  • 100 g grated parmesan cheese
  • Sunflower oil
  • 1,5 liter chicken broth
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Ground coriander
  • Red mild pepper



Cook gently the minced onion with one tablespoon of oil in a pan.


In your cocotte, pour 2 to 3 tablespoons of oil and add the rice. Cook until the rice gets translucent (use regularly a spatula to mix your rice, it shouldn't get brown). This step will take a few minutes.


Add two ladles of broth and cook until it is fully absorbed by the rice.


When it's done, start over again until your rice is cooked.


Add the chorizo cut in slices to the onions, then add the shrimps.


Add the parmesan cheese to the rice.


Season with salt, pepper, ground coriander and red mild pepper.


Add the onion/chorizo/shrimps.


Serve and enjoy !

    je l’ai fait hier soir, c’est très bon, j’ai mis des grains de coriandre (je n’avais que cela..) et finalement cela a donner un petit croquant très sympa! A refaire!
