Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups long-grain rice
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely grated
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 bay leaf
  • Zest and juice of 1 lime
  • 1 cup loosely packed fresh cilantro leaves, roughly chopped
  • 1/2 cup chopped scallions, white and green parts
  • 1/4 cup toasted salted pepitas (hulled pumpkin seeds)

Method

Step 1

Place the rice in a fine-mesh sieve and rinse under cold water until the water runs clear. Drain well.

Step 2

Melt the butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add the garlic; stir and cook until sizzling and golden, about 1 minute. Add the drained rice; stir to coat in the butter and garlic. Season with 1 teaspoon salt and a generous grinding of black pepper.

Step 3

Add 3 cups water and the bay leaf. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to low so the liquid is just simmering. Cover and cook for 18 minutes. Let the rice rest off the heat for 5 minutes.

Step 4

Remove the bay leaf and fluff the rice with a fork. Add the lime zest and juice, the cilantro and the scallions, and toss together. Top with the pepitas and serve.
