Before you start

A pressure-cooker will reduce the risotto cooking time to 7 min. The quantities given here are based on this recipe served as main course.


  1. Heat the broth in a small saucepan on the stove or in a microwave oven. Keep it warm while cooking the risotto (about 20 min).
  2. Heat the oil in a large skillet or saucepan. Sauté the shallot 2-3 min, until it becomes translucent. Add the cuttlefish then sauté 3 min with stirring. Add the rice then cook 1-2 min, with constant stirring, until the rice grains are well toasted and translucent. Add the saffran and deglaze with the wine.
  3. Cook the risotto, using the warmed broth until the rice is creamy but still al dente.
  4. Meanwhile, 5 min before the end of the risotto cooking, cook the peas in a small pot of boiling water. Add the shrimp to warm it up. Well drain the peas and shrimp, then add them to the risotto.
  5. Remove the risotto pan from the heat and let stand for 2 min. Season with salt (not much if the broth is salty) and pepper to taste. Sprinkle with chopped dill and serve.
