Cilantro Lime Rice

This past weekend has been busy with a trip to the beach. The weather was a nice 70 degrees but a little windy. I walked into the ocean but the water was freezing cold as usual for this time of year. We had a great time. I really hated having to leave and get back to work.

With that being said, I totally forgot about getting my traditional St. Patrick's Day Corn beef brisket. I was pretty bummed about it. I always look forward to that each year. We had pork chops instead. The pork chops were delicious too.

I had to make something green to celebrate so I decided to make this Cilantro lime rice.

It was not a big hit with my husband but me and my daughter really liked it. I love anything with cilantro. I think it will go great with fish or tacos.

It was so easy to make.
All you do is cook two cups rice then mix about a 1/4 cup or more of chopped cilantro and the juice of one lime.

That's it. This dish explodes with flavor!

Now I hear my brother in law is making a corn beef brisket. I may have to make a trip across the neighborhood soon.


  1. I love rice dishes and this sounds really nice. I call it coriander rather than cilantro so that threw me for a little while, but yes coriander and lime make a lovely combination.

    1. Just learned something. I have never heard of coriander. Im gonna look that up. Thanks.

  2. I really like the idea of making rice like that for St Patricks Day. Popping by from kids in the kitchen x

  3. Sounds and looks absolutely delicious. x

  4. I love the flavor of the cilantro and lime combination for your rice, it will be yummy! Thanks so much for sharing your post with Full Plate Thursday and hope you have a great week.
    Come Back Soon!
