Saffron Risotto with Shrimp and Peas

Plump shrimp and fresh spring peas make a delicious duo in this lemony risotto, while a pinch of saffron gives it a striking golden hue.

You can use thawed frozen peas instead of fresh -- stir them into risotto off of heat before adding butter, lemon, and cheese.

    Mmmm...My fave shrimp dish! Most anything with Saffron if my favorite dish! Minus the Parm, I make this once a month! I always add Aleppo chili flakes. I have kicked this up a notch for a dinner party using Langustino!raf
