PRAWN, ASPARAGUS AND SAFFRON RISOTTO WITH DILL AND LEMON BUTTER

1.2 litres / 2 pints chicken or vegetable stock
large pinch of saffron strands
350 g / 12 oz asparagus
50 g / 2 oz butter
1 Tbsp olive oil
3 shallots, finely chopped
300 g / 10 oz risotto rice, such as arborio
150 ml / 1/2 pint dry white wine
200 g pack frozen raw prawns in shells, thawed
2 Tbsp chopped fresh dill
1/2 tsp grated lemon rind
salt
pepper

Heat the stock in a large pan with the saffron strands. Cut the
asparagus into diagonal 2.5 cm / 1 in lengths, then add to the
stock and cook for 4 - 5 minutes until just tender. Fish out the
asparagus using a slotted spoon, then cool quickly under running
cold water and set aside. Keep the stock warm.

Heat half the butter with the oil in a large heavy pan. Add the
shallots and cook gently for 5 minutes; do not allow to colour.
Stir in the rice and cook gently, stirring all the time, until the
grains are glistening. Add the wine to the pan and let it bubble
up, stirring all the time. When the rice has absorbed the wine,
add a ladleful of the stock. When it is absorbed, add another
ladleful, continuing this until the rice is plump and tender and
the stock is absorbed, stirring all the time (takes about 20
minutes).

Meanwhile, shell the prawns. melt the remaining butter in a wide
pan. Toss in the prawns, stirring all the time until they are evenly
pink. Add the asparagus and heat through, stirring.

Add the prawns, asparagus and buttery pan juices to the risotto,
stirring them in along with the chopped dill and lemon rind. Taste
and season if necessary.
