      Reviewed for ZWT9- a truly delicious and simple way to prepare rice. Lovely delicate lemon flavour that makes a lovely side to almost any Vietnamese dish.

      Great technique for making rice and the lemon just pushes it right over the top. I served with chicken but agree with you it would be a fantastic side for salmon or shrimp. Thanks for the post.

      What a great recipe, lazyme. The lemon adds a zesty touch to the rice without being overwhelming. I really like Jasmine rice, and this is a great way of preparing it. Made for ZWT #9 (SE Asia-Thailand).
