Cooked Matiz paella rice
  • 1 cup kimchi 1/2 cup sliced onion
  • 2 tsp chopped ginger

  3. Add rice wine and soy sauce, stir to combine, and bring to a simmer. Once all the liquid has been absorbed by the rice, begin adding 1 cup of broth to the skillet at a time.Letting the rice fully absorb the broth before adding the next cup.

Add garlic, stir to combine, and continue to cook for 2-3 minutes. Remove skillet from the heat and add chives and cilantro, stirring to coat the shrimp. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  5. Divide risotto between bowls and top with garlic shrimp.

About this recipe

Kimchi is a magical ingredient. This tangy,spicy, fermented cabbage is infused with savory flavors of garlic, ginger, and Korean chili peppers. When paired with the naturally creamy texture and buttery flavor of risotto, the two create this ideal balance. To enhance the flavor further, we use Aneto’s Fish Broth. It really is a superior broth, with that homemade-feel and umami pop that seems to coat each grain of rice. The fresh seafood and veggies, used in making the broth, really tie in well with the garlic shrimp component. Paella rice, being a member of the short-grain ricefam, is a natural for risotto. When making risotto, the trick is to add the broth in increments. Waiting until the liquid is almost completely absorbed before adding the next cup-full. This gradual addition of broth is paramount to getting the paella rice to release its starch. That starch is what gives this kimchi risotto that tell-tale mouthfeel and silkiness. And, trust me, the Spanish know a thing or two about exceptional rice.
