Lemon Asparagus Risotto with Shrimp

I love to incorporate good seasonal produce in my dishes.  There is nothing better than fresh fruits and vegetables to make a dish stand out!  Risotto is one of those meals that is set to impress, and so very tasty when cooked properly.  I wanted incorporate some of the amazing in season asparagus that is at the market right now, and adding a little lemony touch with shrimp made for the perfect well planned out dish for dinner!

When I teach cooking classes, I am always telling my students how important it is to start with high quality tools in the kitchen, and good ingredients.  If you have those two things going for you, then you are much more likely to find success in the kitchen!  I have been loving my new Calphalon Signature™ Stainless Steel 12″ Omelette Pan I picked up at Macy’s, you can find them in-store or online.  The neat thing about this pan is that is made with high quality five layers of metal, that helps keep the heat even and precise.  It quickly responds to temperature changes, and it has such a durable surface.  I really loved the results, and it performed so well while making this Risotto recipe!
