with gypsy mushroom risotto.
If you want to serve your guests a really delicious meal, this recipe is surely worth trying – full of fancy flavors this is one of my favorites.
Before getting to work on the prawns it is hard to believe that they will turn into such a delicacy when cooked. Looking at them I cannot help but think of the rhinoceros beetle worms in our backyard compost heap…the sort of association that could easily ruin your appetite. Still, I prefer to buy the prawns without shells, since they are both easier to prepare and eat.
Speaking of fancy flavors – the gypsy mushrooms are surely worthy of the term “fancy”. A risotto made of them tastes heavenly and is the perfect side dish to go with pan-cooked giant prawns. These mushrooms are not that easy to come by, but you can consider using any fresh or frozen mushroom as a substitute.
