This rice bowl combines the slight heat of shishitos and salty peanut sauce for a combination that brings deliciousness to every forkful. Not only deliciousness, but a multitude of textures, from crunchy slaw to simple rice.
Bring a medium pot with rice, 1½ cup water, and a pinch of salt to a boil. Reduce to a simmer, cover, and cook until rice is tender, 18-20 minutes.
Remove from burner and set aside covered.
While rice cooks, prepare ingredients.
Prepare the Ingredients
Halve lime. Quarter one half and juice remaining half.
Coarsely chop peanuts.
Mince cilantro (no need to stem).
