    I am looking for a rice that would go well with Tilapia. I'm thinking something light and delicately flavorful. Can anyone help me out?

    Savory Consomme Rice ~ for fish, I'd use chicken broth!
    Almond Rice Mix ~ I made 1/7 of the recipe!

    Or, yellow rice with seasonings, in the little packets is good ~ always a staple in my pantry!

    That is the first thing that came to my mind, too!

    I always have some on hand for a quick seasoned rice when time is short. Use chicken or vegetable stock to make it even better if you have some but it fine even with just tap water.

    I make Company's Coming Baked Rice when I serve fish, and add in the optional lemon and dill. It is delicious yet a delicate flavour.

    I think this one would be good. I use black pepper and add some garlic.

    I always make rice in stock, it tastes great! For fish add a little lemon zest, or lemon pepper, and some chopped spinach or asparagus. Halved Cherry tomatoes would also be nice.

    Nope. I don't actually have a particular time frame. I just discovered the fish recipe yesterday and am thinking about inviting my mom over sometime to eat it - once I get to do a little experimenting with the rice. If you guys can think of any other starchy sides besides rice, that's fine too.

    Sometimes with fish when you're after something light I find couscous is better than rice. If you've never tried it before the quick-cook version is very easy to make (quicker than rice) and cheap so well worth a try. It's fairly plain tasting like rice so you may want to add a little something but not too much, maybe just something like a squeeze of lemon juice and a little parsley.

    I have cooked rice with a little green tea and lemon in it before, it just gives it a little flavor and not so much it overwhelms the other foods. Just put a single tea bag and a couple of slices of lemon in your cooking water.

    I've done that! I added a tea bag's worth of jasmine tea to jasmine rice and it was different but very good!
