Turn your oven on to 200C and pour olive oil in a flat baking tray. Put your cherry tomatoes on the tray and season with a pinch of salt and roast for 15-20 minutes.

In a large, deep pot, heat olive oil over medium heat and add in chopped garlic, thyme and onion. Sautée for 6-8 minutes until onion begins to brown slightly.

Pour in risotto rice and toast for a minute or two. Pour in half the veggie stock and season with smoked paprika and saffron and stir in. Simmer until the stock reduces to the same level as the rice and add in the rest.

Toss in your roasted tomatoes and butter and stir them in.

Sprinkle in parmesan, salt, pepper and stir it in. Turn down the heat and allow to simmer.

Meanwhile, heat olive oil in a pan and add in your shrimp. Season with salt, cumin, smoked paprika and pepper and add in the tomato paste. Once cooked through add into the risotto mixture.

Sprinkle with fresh parsley and serve!
