Original recipe yields 8 servings
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.

For those of you that felt it was bland, I would guess you used can chicken stock. I had made my chicken stock the day before and it (as well as the dish) had great flavor. Even though I stopped after I put in the bacon and second batch of stock, took the pot to my sister's (10min away), then added the shrimp and heated through till they were cooked, it still came out great. Thanks for a keeper oh, and the bacon does make it but so does homeade chicken/shrimp stock :-)"
