This garlic prawn risotto recipe is a real one pot dish (well kinda) – there are a few simple steps and you’ll have a stunning prawn risotto without having to slave away over the stove (well that is if you have a themie).

This would also be amazing if you added some scallops, calamari, fish or salmon
