Shrimp Cream Truffle Risotto. New Music From Honeyblood.

Shrimp Cream Truffle Risotto

Q: Why wouldn’t the shrimp share his treasure?
A: Because he was a little shellfish.

Here is an elegant dinner for you.

A creamy shrimp risotto, with a rich tomato flavor and a hint of wine. The truffle oil lends a hint of earthiness.

Sounds fancy and it really is, but so easy to make. This recipe yields 3 servings, but I found it doubled easily.

Recipe from Unlike Anything I’ve Seen
Shrimp Cream Truffle Risotto

I came across Glasgow based duo Honeyblood last week when I was searching around for some Halloween themed music with the tag “blood”, of all things.

What bloody luck!

Bud is new from the band and quite excellent. I’m all over singer Stina Tweeddale’s dreamy vocals.

Check out Honeyblood on Facebook and Bandcamp, where you can learn of a December 14th gig in Edinburgh and buy their older music. You can buy Honeyblood’s latest at FatCat Records.

Cheers!
