Lovely and light enough for a patio dinner party. I used wild rice instead and squeezed the juice from one key lime into the rice with the cilantro instead of sprinkling that on top at the end. Added a nice flavor to the rice.
Very nice! While we liked it as written, next time I think we will make it with shrimp.
I don't eat seafood, but this one went over well with my husband, and he's a man of discerning taste!
