  • Made this last night and I loved it. I added a little lemon sea salt and black pepper and two cloves of garlic. I wasnt sure if the orange juice needed to be fresh or from concentrate so I used fresh and threw in the pulp too. - 4/1/10

  • I absolutely loved this rice. I served it with the Cajun Maple Mahi Mahi recipe and it complimented the meal very well. I did cook the rice a little longer than what the package said and it turned out perfect! - 1/10/08
