Chef JJ Johnson, James Beard award winner, owner of Fieldtrip, and cookbook author, is a champion of rice. From sustainability to working with local rice farmers, to techniques and recipes, Chef JJ believes rice is culture. This recipe for cilantro lime rice comes from his latest cookbook, The Simple Art of Rice, Recipes from Around the World for the Heart of Your Table.
Chef JJ says, "I used to love the cilantro lime rice my mom made from a box when I was a kid. Now I like to make this fun dish for my family at home. The key, though, is using all fresh ingredients for the rice, including fresh herbs and lime juice. The versatile marinade also tastes great with chicken, swordfish, or grilled vegetables."
