You don’t need to be a chef to make risotto. Seriously. Especially with this easy shrimp and asparagus version. The preparation isn’t the only thing that’s simple. Fresh shrimp and asparagus get dressed with just a bit of olive oil, salt and pepper and are then grilled for a smoky flavor that still lets the essence of the briny shrimp and crisp-tender asparagus shine through. This creamy risotto also includes a good bit of freshly squeezed lemon juice, which pairs beautifully with both stars of the dish. Add friends, a warm summer night and a glass of great wine, and you couldn’t ask for anything better.

In case you missed it, you can also make risotto in advance for less stressful entertaining. Just follow the method described in our Make-Ahead Risotto Recipe.

In celebration of our newest store opening–September 18 in Vancouver, Canada—we’re showcasing some of our (and your) favorite dishes and recipes this month that will be coming soon to our 119th store.

I’ve used this vinaigrette recipe before in our What’s Cooking series—see our Cilantro Lime Chicken Tacos and impressive Bistro Crab Stack Salad. Along with the smoky grilled shrimp and Southwest-inspired toppings, this vinaigrette livens up all the flavors in this salad with a nice kick from the chipotle chiles, balanced by a hint of honeyed sweetness and a generous heap of fresh cilantro. As many diners at our restaurants have discovered, this salad is a perfect lunch to punctuate any visit to our stores and now, a new recipe in your repertoire for devouring at home.
