Cilantro-Lime Jasmine Rice

Usually, Mexican rice dishes use a standard long-grain rice. But I prefer to use Jasmine rice instead. Jasmine rice has a beautiful, flowery aroma and fluffy texture which are perfect elements for a Summer side dish. I love to serve this with both Asian and Latin-inspired dishes, especially my Simple Fish Tacos.

Makes 4 servings


1 cup Jasmine rice
1 tbsp. salted butter
2 tbsp cilantro, chopped
1/2 lime, juiced
2 tsp. cumin
1 tsp Kosher salt
1 tsp black pepper


In a saucepan, boil 1 1/2 cup water and butter.

Add in rice, cover saucepan and reduce heat to a simmer. Cook for 15 minutes.

Remove from heat and fluff with fork.

Toss in lime juice, cumin, cilantro, salt, and pepper. Serve with your favorite entree.
