Alternate title: Stock so rich it can buy you, your friends, and that club.
It’s rare that I use up all of the ingredients that I buy whenever I cook at home. More often than not, I would end up with half an onion or a few sticks of celery left over from the recipe. Luckily, these vegetable scraps and any other bones or shells would actually make a delicious stock that you can keep in your freezer for future use!
Note: For this batch of stock, I used the prawn shells from last week’s gambas for a flavorful shrimp stock.
Finally got back to the kitchen cooking one of my favourite dishes too! What I love about risottos is that there’s so much you can do with the basic process for the dish. You can come up with very different dishes just by picking a different stock or a different set of ingredients that you mix in at the end to get the taste that you’re looking for. For tonight’s dinner, I decided on a porcini mushroom risotto with a shrimp stock I made from some shrimp heads that we had left over from our lunch.
