Look for large shell-on prawns and leave on the tail, if you can, as these will look elegant on top of the rice.
If preparing for a dinner party, make to the end of step 3 up to 4 hours ahead.
Finishing off the rice just before serving means you can ensure it has the correct consistency – push a wooden spoon through it and the risotto should slowly fill the gap like a wave.
The risotto will suit a dry white wine that’s light, fresh and lemony. An Italian white such as a soave or verdicchio is just right.
