Shrimp and Speckled Butter Bean Risotto Recipe


  • 1 cup Arborio rice
  • 1 pound shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 1 cup speckled butter beans (fresh or canned)
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 4 cups chicken or vegetable broth
  • ½ cup dry white wine (optional)
  • ½ cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Fresh herbs (such as parsley or basil), chopped
  • Salt and pepper, to taste


  1. Prepare the Ingredients: If using fresh speckled butter beans, cook them until tender. For the shrimp, season with salt and pepper.
  2. Cook the Onion and Garlic: In a large pan, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the chopped onion and cook until translucent. Add the minced garlic and cook for another minute.
  3. Add the Rice: Stir in the Arborio rice, ensuring it’s well-coated with the oil and onion mixture. Cook for about 2 minutes until the rice becomes slightly translucent.
  4. Deglaze with Wine: Pour in the white wine (if using) and let it reduce until almost evaporated.
  5. Add Broth Gradually: Begin adding the broth, one ladle at a time, stirring frequently. Wait until each addition is almost fully absorbed before adding the next.
  6. Add Butter Beans: Halfway through cooking the rice (about 10 minutes), add the speckled butter beans.
  7. Cook the Shrimp: In a separate pan, quickly cook the shrimp until they are pink and opaque, then set aside.
  8. Combine and Finish: Once the rice is cooked to a creamy consistency, stir in the cooked shrimp, Parmesan cheese, and fresh herbs. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  9. Serve Warm: Dish out the risotto into bowls, garnish with extra herbs or cheese if desired, and serve warm.
