Very good, with a great lemony flavor. A good accompaniament to crab cakes and steamed veggies. I made exactly as directed, except substituted salted butter and chardonnay. Next time, I'll add the parsley in the last few minutes of cooking so that it retains its bright color and crisp flavor. Cooking the parsley with the rice for 20 minutes made it too wilted and bitter for my tastes, though the pilaf was still good.

This was just great. I followed the directions except I eased up on the garlic. I think I will add more lemon next time but it can out wonderful. It was simple to cook and has a great unique flavor. Thanks, Kimberly from Carrollton

I really loved this dish. I served it with zaars honey-lime chicken. I did change the ingredients, but not the amount, and only because I had certain ones on hand. I used a lime rind, cilantro, and white wine. For some reason, though, the rind made it a little bitter. Next time I will use a tablespoon of lime juice. Other than that it was awsome. I'm also going to try it the orginal way it is posted, because it sounds really great also. :)
