This is a great side dish with any fresh fish especially in the summer.

"Great recipe. Next time I will add more lime juice. I did 2 c of water to 1 c rice. I also added a half of can of zesty tomatoes (they had jalapenos with them) for extra spice and vegetable. I served it with Pepper Rubbed Pork chops topped with guacamole and it was a fabulous dinner. I see where this could go with many latin dishes in our future. Thanks for the recipe."

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!
