Limelight Rice

If you want to transport yourself to the islands, this rice will do it for you!  Because we're becoming "one with the grill" the addition of a light lime infused rice was the perfect complement to go with my grilled trout.  The rice also gets more fresh flavor from ginger, cilantro and pineapple.


2 cups water

1 cup white basmati rice or long grain

1 Tbsp coconut oil

1/2 tsp lime zest

1/2 tsp minced ginger

1/4 tsp coriander

1/4 tsp dried cilantro (fresh would be much better but I didn't have any!)

a pat of butter (optional)

3-4 oz. crushed pineapple

Bring the water to a boil with coconut oil, zest, ginger, coriander and cilantro.  Add the rice, reduce to simmer and cover.  Cook for about 20-25 minutes until rice is done.  Add a pat of butter, crushed pineapple and at the last moment I added some Thai basil from my garden for more flavor.  Stir and serve.  Very nice!
