Prawns, Saffron, Chilli and Tomato with the traditional risotto base and process.
Put stock, water and crushed, or finely chopped, saffron in a saucepan and bring up to the simmer.
In a large fry pan or heavy saucepan over medium heat, melt the butter with olive oil.
Add the onion, garlic and chilli and saute gently until soft.
Add the rice and stir for about 2 minutes, until all the grains are coated shiny.
Add the tomatoes and continue to saute for another minute.
Turn up the heat and add the wine.
Add ladles of the stock 1 or 2 at a time and stir often while rice absorbs each amount of stock before adding more.
When rice has absorbed most of the stock, taste for "doneness". The rice should be al dente pasta textured, not too soft.
Reduce heat to a low simmer.
Add the prawns and parmesan, stir and cover for 2 minutes.
Season to taste and stir through the basil leaves, adding a leaf or sprig on top for presentation.
Fresh saffron tastes completely different. I bought saffron in Hobart that had been grown in Tasmania and it made this dish so much better.
If you want a stronger colour to the dish, soak the saffron in some warm water for a couple of hours before use.
Medium prawns are sweeter and the right size for this dish.

Darwin ---the capital city of the Northern Territory Darwin has a pace that might - almost - be described as brisk, at least by Northern Territory standards. The city's populace now reflects its proximity to Asia: the mix of some 50 cultures including Aborigines, Vietnamese, Filipinos, Malays, New Guineans, Pacific Islanders, Japanese, Indonesians and European Australians, provides a strong cosmopolitan flavour. The Northern Territory’s capital, Darwin was founded in 1869, after more than 40 years of failed settlements in the north – abandoned one after another because of malaria outbreaks, cyclones, Aboriginal attacks and supply failure due to the sheer distance from the other white settlements. It was named after Charles Darwin, one of whose shipmates on the Beagle discovered the bay in 1839. The best way to appreciate Darwin's multiethnic mix is to visit this market, held every Thursday and Sunday evening from April to October, with stalls selling foods from around the world and handmade craft including crocodile products, indigenous art and jewellery.
