Cilantro Lime Rice

This Mexican side dish can’t be done any better, even at your standby taco joint! Lots of fresh lime and cilantro make for a rice pilaf that perks up any platter.

2 cups water
1 cup white rice
1 tablespoon unsalted butter
½ teaspoon salt
½ cup minced fresh cilantro
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
1 teaspoon fresh lime zest

Place water, rice, butter, and salt in a medium pot over medium-high heat. Bring to a boil, cover, and lower to a simmer; cook 15 to 20 minutes, until water is absorbed. Remove from heat; stir in cilantro, lime juice, and zest, and let rest, covered, 5 minutes.
