Recipe by Norahs Girl

One of my favourite rice dishes. Lovely with seafood.

This was good, but a little too strong on the lemon flavor for my family. That may be because I used a fresh lemon from a friend's tree (I think fresh citrus has more juice that that pruchased at the store). Will try it again with less lemon.
