This Brazilian style coconut milk shrimp risotto is deliciously creamy, served with large plump, juicy shrimp and drizzled with fresh homemade chimichirri sauce.

What kind of rice is used to make Risotto?

Arborio rice is typically used to make risotto. It is a short grained white rice that has a higher starch content than other types of short grained rice.


Arborio rice Chicken broth White wine Coconut milk Parmesan cheese Salt Dende oil Shrimp Mango Chimichurri

Heat 1 tsp. of dende oil in a large pot or dutch oven over medium heat. Add the arborio rice and cook until the rice starts to become translucent (about 2-3 minutes).


Add the white wine and cook until it is absorbed, stirring constantly. Add 1 ½ cups of the chicken broth, ½ cup at a time, stirring until fully absorbed before adding the next half cup.

Add the coconut milk, ½ a cup at a time, and stir until fully absorbed. Add the remaining chicken broth, half a cup at a time, until almost fully absorbed.

Remove from heat and add the parmesan cheese. Add additional salt to taste if necessary.
