Keto Prawn Risotto

It’s a cauliflower rice risotto

Once again the very nice people at Cambay Tiger sent over some seafood, this time it was prawns. I watch a video of one of my favourite chef, Marco Pierre White where he cooked up a prawns risotto. I found inspiration and decided to make my own Keto prawn risotto. As always we use cauliflower rice, some prawns, some mascarpone cheese and create this wonderful dish. Enjoy!

The balancing act

This dish is all about getting the balance right between the cooking liquid and the rice. Unlike actual rice the cauliflower is going to absorb much less moisture and liquid. The whole idea is to cook the rice in stock. Ideally I would recommend fish stock but since I didn’t have any on hand I used mushroom stock. My suggestion is to add the stock slowly and keep cooking it out into the cauliflower rice till it’s tender, otherwise you’ll get a more soupy risotto at the end. Also keep in mind that the prawns themselves will release moisture when cooked. You can also add spinach to this and you can even do this with chicken. If you want to drop the amount of protein and raise the fat, reduce the amount of prawns and add 1 tablespoon of butter right at the end.

    I need to drop blood sugars and lose weight. I have been trying hard over 5 weeks but recently switched to Atkins and realize that Keto is the best of the best. So far I have dropped 13 lbs. in 5 weeks and in the past week and a half , dropped over 100 points on my Glucometer. My blood sugars aren’t normal yet but I know they will be.
    I love your approach making your versions of flat breads and you mention that one of them can be used as a crepe. I used to make them but I had no idea that I could do this again so I am super convinced that Keto is going to keep me healthier than ever! I am impressed!!!!
