I found this to be very bland. I used orzo and vegetable broth with chicken seasoning, and added some sliced mushrooms; but the dish should have had more flavor. It just needed "something", maybe some goat cheese as I've seen this in other shrimp risotto recipes. It's too bad I used a pound of US-farmed large shrimp on this, but I was looking for a way to stretch it. Next time I'll just make coconut shrimp.
this was a very delicious recipe and super easy to make. My family loved it! I didnt use any fennel or the fronds. Next time I make this, I will add more lemon rind.
