Shrimp Asparagus Risotto- Winston Salem, North Carolina
Willow's Bistro is a farm to table gourmet restaurant in a cute little spot near downtown Winston Salem. I have recreated one of the best tasty dishes they serve on their summer menu: Shrimp Asparagus Risotto. My recipe is simple, easy to follow, made with quality ingredients and of course delish!

My favorite thing about my city is the restaurants that serve farm to table food in a creative seasonal menu. I would so love the opportunity to travel abroad to Italy to experience farm to table menus and flavors in a new country!

    Continue to stir as it's all cooking. After your third addition of broth, add shrimp to the pan.
    Taste the rice at this point, if it is soft you don't need to continue adding broth, if it's slightly hard keep adding all the broth 1/2 cup at a time, add more as needed until soft.
    Once all broth is absorbed and the rice is soft, add in the parmesan and season with S&P.
