Liquid Polenta And Fried Shrimp: Recipe Of The Week

This weeks recipe is all about sharing family secrets. As a family, the Montini’s favourite dish to cook is spaghetti al pomodoro basilico. It’s a firm favourite amongst all members of the family. But the Montini’s also shared their secret family recipe that has been with them for generations. Their secret signature dish is liquid polenta and fried shrimp.

Founder of Risoli – Alfredo’s love and belief in healthy food and cooking has contributed to his business in kitchenware, and he has installed this belief within the Risoli brand to try and keep the food flavoursome and wholesome. Risoli has made cooking time that little bit more special.

The Montini family’s liquid polenta and fried shrimp recipe

Ingredients

1 cup polenta
8 slices thick-cut bacon
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
3 cloves garlic
1 1/4 pounds shrimp
1/2 cup dry white wine
2 tablespoons butter
1 cup grated cheddar cheese

Preparation

1.Add 1/2 tsp salt to 3 1/2 cups water and bring to boil in a saucepan. Slowly pour in polenta constantly whisking until mixture comes to a steady simmer. Reduce heat, cover and stir every 5 minutes for 25 minutes until done.

2. Fry your bacon separately until edges start to brown and crisp. Drain bacon on paper towels, chop, and set aside.

3. Add garlic to pan and cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add shrimp and cook, stirring constantly, until starting to turn pink, 1 to 2 minutes. Pour in wine and continue cooking, stirring and scraping up any browned bits from the pan, until shrimp is cooked through, about 2 minutes. Remove from heat.

6. Stir butter, cheese, and bacon into polenta. Divide polenta among 4 to 6 plates and top with shrimp and remaining liquid in the pan, dividing evenly. Garnish with fried tomato halves and spring onions. Serve immediately.

Enjoy!
