Ingredients

  • 1 teaspoon canola oil
  • 1 cup long grain white rice
  • 1 cup chicken stock
  • 2 to 3 strips lime peel
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 tablespoon lime zest plus 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro leaves, plus more for sprinkling
  • 2 green onions, green parts only, chopped

Method

Step 1

Heat the oil in a large saucepot over medium-high heat. Add the rice and toast until lightly golden, about 1 minute. Add the stock, lime peel, salt and 1 1/2 cups water and bring to a boil. Cover the rice, reduce the heat to low and simmer until all of the liquid is absorbed, about 15 minutes. Let the rice stand, covered, about 5 minutes, then stir in the lime zest, juice and cilantro. Transfer to a serving bowl and top with more cilantro leaves and green onion.
