Low FODMAP tomato risotto with shrimps

Ahh risotto, that might be one of my most favorite dishes ever. I love normal rice dishes, but risotto is even better than that. The way you prepare it makes it super creamy and delicious.

You can add all kinds of ingredients to it and turn it in to a completely different dish every single time. I made a risotto with fish this time because I didn’t do that before. I yummy low FODMAP tomato risotto with shrimps! 

Not a fan of fish? 

I love fish and I really loved the shrimps in this risotto. My boyfriend, however, is allergic to fish and for him, I left the shrimps out and added in chicken.

He really loved this version too! So if you don’t like fish or you cannot eat it, you can also make this risotto with chicken.

Last year, I shared a recipe for risotto with chicken on the blog. A super simple recipe that I had quickly thrown together on a day that I didn’t feel like cooking.

At first, I didn’t even want to share the recipe with you, but because I got several questions about it, it did anyway. And guess what: this recipe turned out to become one of the most popular recipes on my blog!

My personal favourites are the mushroom and prosciutto risotto and the risotto with spinach pesto. The lemon risotto is a wonderful risotto for summer days.

Low FODMAP tomato risotto with shrimps! A delicious combination of risotto and fish. Great for every season ✓ Gluten-free ✓ Low in lactose


  • Garlic-infused olive oil

  1. Rinse the cherry tomatoes and cut them into halves.
  2. Heat a tablespoon of garlic-infused olive oil in a pan.
  3. Add the cherry tomatoes and fry them shortly.
  4. Add the rice and stir this around for a few minutes, until the rice starts to look glossy. Add the white wine to the rice and wait until it has evaporated.
  5. Add the diced tomatoes and stir everything together.
  6. Add a spoonful of stock. Wait until all the stock has absorbed and then add another spoonful. Repeat this until the rice is cooked and soft.
  7. Heat a splash of olive oil in a pan and fry the shrimps until cooked, in about 4 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Turn off the heat and sprinkle with the lemon juice.
  8. Stir the shrimps into the risotto and also add the creme fraîche and a small handful of chopped basil. Heat the risotto until the cream fraîche is warm.
  9. Serve the risotto with some grated parmesan cheese on top and extra basil.


*Tomatoes have been retested in 2022 and are now limited low FODMAP. If you are still in the elimination phase or know that you react to fructose, I advise using only the canned tomatoes in this recipe and leaving out the cherry tomatoes. If you know you tolerate fructose well, you can use both.

**If you don’t want to use wine, you can replace this with 50 ml (1/4 cup) extra stock
