Scottish Recipes: Partan Bree
Partan is the Scots word for a crab and bree is a liquid in which something edible has been boiled and left to soak. So partan bree is crab soup!
Recipe Ingredients:1 large cooked crab
2 oz (50g or ¼ cup) rice
1 pint (600ml or 2½ cups) milk
1 pint (600ml or 2½ cups) liquor from boiling the crab
¼ pint (125ml or ¾ cup) single cream
Salt and pepper
Finely chopped chives
Preparation Method:Remove all the meat from the crab, keeping the claw meat separate. Cook the rice in a pan with the milk and water until tender. Liquidise this with the brown body meat from the crab. Add the white meat and cream and reheat. Add salt and pepper to taste. If the partan bree is too thick, you can add some more milk if required. Serve garnished with fresh, green, finely chopped chives.
