Cilantro Lime Rice

Cilantro lime rice is simple one pot dish that is full of robust flavors.  Sauteed onions, garlic and ginger adds an aromatic and savory touch to the rice.  The rice is then lightly toasted in butter, cooked in chicken broth and infused with lime zest to add flavor and a refreshing twist.  The rice is then fluffed with chopped cilantro and fresh lime juice to brighten up the dish.  It’s a decadent way to dress up rice and wonderful served with sauteed shrimp.

I love the deep red color of this caldero pot. Don’t be tempted to uncover the pot while the rice is cooking. The steam and moisture trapped inside the pot will help create a fluffy and tender rice dish.

    I’m one of those poor unlucky souls who originally thought cilantro tasted like soap. I still can’t handle the scent of it but I have been weaning myself into eating it more often and now like it in some ways. I love rice and I love lime so this is a definite for me to try!
