Bacon strip 4
Onions 2 Medium , finely chopped
Garlic 1 Clove (5 gm) , finely chopped
Raw rice 1 Cup (16 tbs)
White wine 2 Cup (32 tbs)
Parsley 1/4 Cup (4 tbs) , chopped
Cognac 1/4 Cup (4 tbs)
Tomatoes 2 , peeled, seeded and chopped
Crabmeat/Lump / back fin
Heavy cream/Sour cream 1/2 Cup (8 tbs)
Salt To Taste
Black pepper To Taste


Place bacon in heavy, cold skillet, and heat slowly until crisp.

Remove the bacon.

Add onion, garlic and rice to the bacon fat.

Cook until onion is transparent and rice is done.

Add wine, parsley, bring to boil and cover.

Turn heat down low, and cook for 15-20 minutes or until liquid is absorbed.

Stir in the Cognac, tomatoes, crabmeat and bacon, and heat.

Stir in the cream just before serving, and season to taste.

This is best made with the fresh lump crabmeat, but the frozen king crab from the Pacific Coast will do, as will the canned.
