Lemon Rice With Scallions

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Oolala

Delicious side dish with fish from a local church cookbook. I used 1 good shake of dried parsley since my kids don't like the flecks. Tastes great!

We enjoyed this rice dish. I didn't particularly care for the paprika sprinkled on top, but everything else worked quite well in this dish. The green onions in particular added a fresh taste to the rice dish. Thanks for sharing your recipe, Ooolala.
