  • We heat a stockpot and add extra virgin olive oil and onions and sauté for 3 minutes.
  • Then, we add the rice and cook it for extra 3 minutes before adding white wine. We let the mix get cooked for about 5 minutes.
  • In another sauté pan over medium heat we add 2 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil. We season the shrimp with salt and pepper, add it to the pan and cook for 3 minutes on each side.
  • While the shrimp is getting cooked, we add to the pan celery, garlic cloves, fennel, carrots and one orange and cook for extra 3 minutes. We add butter if needed and season with salt and pepper.
  • When both the risotto and the shrimp are cooked, we place them on a serving plate, first the risotto and then the shrimp on top.
