  1. Place bacon in a large, heavy pot over medium-high heat, and cook until evenly brown. Remove, and set aside. Drain drippings, reserving 3 tablespoons in the pot.
  2. Place onion in the pot with the bacon drippings, and cook 5 minutes over medium heat, stirring constantly, until tender. Mix in the rice, 2 1/4 cups broth, tomatoes with juice, lemon juice, and Worcestershire sauce. Season with salt, nutmeg, cayenne pepper, and black pepper. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer 20 minutes.
  3. Stir the cooked bacon, remaining 1 cup broth, and shrimp into the pot. Continue cooking 10 minutes, uncovered, over low heat. Sprinkle with parsley to serve.

Very good and very easy to make. I cut down on the nutmeg just a tad and doubled the cayenne (we like it spicy) and it was perfect. Also, my rice had absorbed all of the liquid and had begun t...

This was so tasty! My only problem with the recipe is that the rice overcooked. Most white rice is done at 20 minutes. Here are some changes I had to make due to what I had. No broth, just w...

Now, it can be a bit spicy, so I usually start with half of the cayenne called for and go from there. I also use an extra half pound of shrimp.
