Easy Coriander & Lime Rice

Coriander & Lime Rice

I love the fragrance and flavor of limes and other citrus fruits. In fact, my favorite scent is Extract of Limes. And after zesting and juicing the fruits, I often take a moment to sniff my hands: these are the original freshmakers.

And there’s nothing like Coriander & Lime to add a surprise twist to otherwise mundane rice.

Coriander & Lime Rice

Coriander & Lime Rice

Intoxicatingly fragrant, this versatile concoction lends a freshness booster to your normal rice dish. This is just the side dish to cut through and balance heavy dishes like meats (lamb, pork, beef) and seafood.

Ingredients: (Serves 3)

  • 2 cups of Basmati Rice (or any long-grained rice)
  • 2 cups of Water
  • Zest and juice of 2 large Limes
  • A bunch of Coriander
  • 3 tbsp of Olive Oil
  • Pinch of Salt and Black Pepper


  1. Combine the water and the rice in a pot and cook on high heat.
  2. Allow the water to boil for 5 minutes and then lower the heat.
  3. While the rice is cooking, roughly chop the Coriander and Lime Zest.
  4. Combine the Coriander, Lime Zest, Juice, Olive Oil and seasoning into a small bowl and leave to rest.
  5. When the rice has been cooked, gently fold the Coriander & Lime mixture into the pot.
  6. Serve immediately, while hot.


  • This is the recipe where you can use the Good Olive Oil.
  • There’s no need to use a blender or food processor.
  • Use a rice paddle to carefully fold the the mixture in to avoid breaking the rice grains.
  • If you add 2 cloves of chopped crushed Garlic, the Coriander & Lime mixture is also a good sauce for BBQ meats and seafood (leave to rest for 20 minutes before using).
