Don't believe that a one-pan meal can have all healthy nutrients and be done in 30 minutes or less? This creamy seafood risotto recipe is robust, filling, and so delicious. It's packed with flavor and much easier to do than you may assume. 

For example, shrimp is relatively low in calories, providing only 85 calories in a 3-ounce serving! Further, the same serving size provides more than eight different vitamins and minerals. These are Iron, Phosphorus, Potassium, Zinc, Magnesium, Sodium, and others. Well, inspiring, isn't it? 

Now parmesan's turn. It contains calcium, a significant source of several health benefits. Cheese is also an excellent way to consume protein, especially for people who refuse to eat meat. So you see that the combination of the ingredients is more than perfect for an effective weight-loss meal plan. Try this light and delicious recipe to enjoy a real taste of life!

Essential ingredients

  • Shrimp

    50 g (7 pieces)

  • Parmesan (grated)

    50 g (1 cup)

  • Onions

    60 g (½ pieces)

  • Garlic

    3 g (1 tsp)

  • Rice

    150 g (¾ cup)

  • Butter 82.5%

    5 g (1 tsp)

  • Chicken broth

    250 g (1 cup)

  • Almond Flakes

    6 g (1 tsp)

Ingredients to taste

Salt, Provence herbs mix, Thyme

How to make

  • 1

    Chop onion, then mince garlic. Saute the ingredients in a pan and butter over medium heat.

  • 2

    Add in shrimps, and cook until just barely opaque and light pink.

  • 3

    Remove shrimp from pan and set aside.

  • 4

    Add rinsed rice to sauteed garlic and onions, stir well and cook for 1 minute.

  • 5

    Reduce heat to a low simmer. Then pour in one cup of broth while stirring. Continue to go until all of the broth is absorbed.

  • 6

    Add one cup of broth to the mass at a time, ensuring liquid is absorbed before adding the next portion.

  • 7

    Rice should look 'al dente.' Mix in cheese slowly and a little bit at a time, then shrimp. Heat for 2-3 minutes while stirring until all mixed.

  • 8

    Salt as needed, top with provence herbs and a sprig of thyme. Sprinkle with almond flakes.

Weight Loss Tips

  • When you're making a broth for soup, choose bony parts of meat and cut off excess fat from the meat before putting it in a casserole.

  • Also, try to cook grains more often in water to ensure that you don't add calories to your porridge by using milk or broth.

  • Opt for brown or wild rice instead of standard white rice. Less processed versions of this grain are higher in fiber, vitamins, and minerals and have a lower glycemic index, which means they won't spike your insulin levels as much as white rice.
