I added a little sweet onion to it for my tastes but it was good with fish tacos and such. Rev. Ken James Gertner

DO NOT USE A TABLESPOON OF SALT IN THIS RECIPE. It will make this dish inedible.

These measurements look off? Most recipes call for 2 cups of water to 1 cup of rice. Also the oil/salt quantities look flipped: 1 Tbsp oil and 1/2 tsp salt seems more appropriate. With these adjustments this recipe turned out awesome!
