Total Time:


1 cup long-grain white rice
coarse salt and ground pepper
2 tablespoons sesame seeds, toasted
1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil
1/2 teaspoon finely grated lime zest
1 tablespoon fresh lime juice


In a medium saucepan, bring 1 1/2 cups water to a boil. Add rice, season with salt and pepper, and return to a boil. Reduce to a simmer, cover, and cook just until tender, 15 to 17 minutes. Remove pan from heat, and let stand, covered, for 5 minutes.

Toss rice with sesame seeds, oil, and lime zest and juice. Season with salt and pepper, and fluff gently with a fork.
