  • 1 Tbs. olive oil
  • 1 Tbs. minced shallot
  • 1 medium clove garlic, minced
  • 1 cup white long grain rice
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 Tbs. fresh lime juice
  • 1 Tbs. finely grated lime zest



Step 1

In a 3-quart saucepan, heat the olive oil, shallot, and garlic over high heat until lightly browned, about 1 minute. Stir in the rice, 1 tsp. salt, and 1/4 tsp. pepper. Add 2 cups water and bring to a boil. Cover, reduce the heat to low, and cook until the rice is tender and has absorbed the water, 15 to 20 minutes. With a fork, immediately fluff in the lime juice and zest, cover, and let sit for a few minutes. Season to taste with salt and pepper and serve.
