Radicchio Risotto with Grilled Mantis Shrimp Recipe

Radicchio or Italian chicory (Cichorium intybus) and is a perennial plant and it’s grown as a leaf vegetable which usually has white-veined red leaves. It has a slighly bitter and spicy taste, which mellows when it is grilled or roasted.In Italian cuisine, it is usually eaten grilled in olive oil, or mixed into dishes such as risotto. Beside Radicchio risotto, i like to served radicchio raw as a salad, usually with Grilled Angus Ribeye Beef Steak with Jerussalem Artichoke, Tofu and Tarragon Vinnaigrette

Radicchio Risotto with Grilled Mantis Shrimp (Canocchie)

The bitter edge of radicchio is cooked off a bit in this risotto, but the primary flavor does involve the sophisticated slightly bitter flavor one expects in chicories, endives, and radicchio. The like to add some Danish blue cheese to  the because the creamy and cheesey taste milder the bitter flavour. AYou can use any of theese for this recipe, and don’t forget to double the amount to get the same effect as the blue cheese. For making the quick and easy radicchio risotto, you should use arborio rice or any short grain rice because it cooked faster than medium or long grain rice. This is needed because you don’t wanna overcooked the radicchio.

Radicchio Risotto Recipe with Blue Cheese and Grilled Canocchie (Mantis Prawn)

For the protein, i’m using mantis shrimp or mantis prawn or Canocchie in Italian. I’ve ever made Deep Fried Mantis Shrimp with Salt and Pepper Crispy Butter Cereal or Oatmeal and Stir Fry Mantis Shrimp with Black Pepper Sauce Recipe, i’m better be using another ccoking technique for it with is simple grilling. The grilled mantis shrimp is marinated with salt and peper then drenched with some lime juice and olive oil. Instead of throwing away, the rest of the mantis shrimp shell and  head i use for cooking the risotto, it’s made the risotto taste even better. Usually the mantis shrimp head and the head is add  to the broth that using for making the risotto, but i’m not that kind of patient to reduce the broth for infused the mantis shrimp flavour.

  1. My take is the grilled mantis shrimp because we are big eaters of rice and risotto somehow get stuck in our throat. Still, the prawns can be a side with our rice or a simple stir fried noodle.

  2. Oh? So that’s what a mantis prawn is called? Ronggeng is a traditional Malay dance. Gosh!!! Everything you cook looks soooo good! Great job! My daughter would love this – her kind of cuisine.

  3. I do not really like Italian foods but I seen them someday in Master Chef USA which is one of the contestant from Italy cooking Risotto and it looks so delicious! I really wanna try them, but unluckily I still do not like it! 😆
    Pasta and Pizza its only acceptable Italian food for my tongue he he he

  4. pernah ku bikin sop pake kol merah itu, warnanya jadi merah semua.. akhirnya bikin bubur aja deh, eh merah juga.. seru warnanya.. lebih keren lagi kalu dicampur udang ronggeng ya..

  5. What a lovely risotto. I actually adore bitter leaves like radicchio… and it gives such beautiful colour too to the risotto. And the combination with creamy blue cheese… oh yum! My mouth waters just thinking about it…

  6. This risotto looks fantastic and so flavorful! I’ve never tried using radicchio in risotto but it sounds like a great idea, thanks so much for sharing 🙂
