The aromatic citrus flavor and cilantro in this rice dish makes its delicious flavor.

Delicious on its own, and perfect with the cajun spiced tilapia with corn salsa we served for dinner. Put everything but the cilantro in a rice cooker and let that do the magic, then when it was done, stirred in the cilantro. Definitely a keeper.
