This recipe looks yummy. I made my first risotto last night, lemon, herb and chicken. It was so gOod. I am keen to make more. I was just wondering i live in the country and can't get fresh prawns. Can I use frozen cooked prawns?

I have to agree with you Amie, this does sound yummy I'm going to make this, see if you can get raw prawn meat in the freezer I think it would be better than cooked ones for this recipe.

I love this delicious recipe and always use raw prawns from the freezer.  I do thaw them first but imagine just a little long cooking time would be OK if using frozen.  will check that out next time and be guided by the colour.
You haven't failed at anything until you stop trying.

You can use thawed cooked prawns.  Just make sure you don't reheat any risotto left-overs (prawns) as they can only be heated twice.

This has become our favourite Risotto, made it again last night, this time I used 2 heaped teaspoons of Tenina's  Caramelized Garlic Paste instead of the garlic and Tenina's chicken stock powder. DH loved it so much he went back for seconds.
I child-proofed my house, but they still get in!

We had this for dinner last night. It was beautiful. The prawns were perfect. I wish had had read your tweak jeninwa. I 'll do that next time.

This was absolutely delish. Only variation was adding peas at halfway point and leaving it in the TMX itself for the last 10 mins rather than thermosaver. Will definitely make it again.

I loved this too, thanks for the recipe! My first attempt at risotto made me feel like a seasoned chef!! We didn't have any sour cream but it was still creamy and tangy from the lemon juice.

I have a query... Do you leave the butterfly in for the remaining 3 steps? Ie after adding stock, then prawns then remaining ingredients ?
I took it out... But now thinking I should have left as the TMX seemed to struggle a bit with the thickness... (I manually stirred the last step in the thermo server) ???

Leave the butteerfly in Kulsha. We had this again on Sunday night. So quick and easy.
