This rice is so easy to make, you’re definitely going to find all kinds of dishes to serve it with. I love it with baked fish, but it’s also wonderful with fajitas or enchiladas. Cilantro Lime Rice has a wonderful balance of bright, refreshing flavor from the lime zest with the earthiness of cilantro. It makes an exceptionally versatile side dish and the flavor adds a nice touch to just about any meal. It’s one of my family’s favorites.

Cilantro Lime Rice is a very flexible side dish. The recipe calls for long-grain rice, but it would also work well with Jasmine rice. You might even want to consider trying it with brown rice, orzo, or quinoa for a wonderful unique flavor twist.
