  1. In a petite saucepan set over a moderately high flame, dissolve the butter. Introduce the ginger and sauté it, agitating frequently, until it releases its aroma, which should take approximately 1 to 2 minutes.
  2. Pour in the water and sprinkle a smidgen of sea salt into the pot; elevate the heat to bring the mixture to a rolling boil. Scatter in the rice, then cover the pot and lower the heat to maintain a soft simmer. Leave the rice to cook until it becomes tender, which typically takes around 15 minutes.
  3. Once cooked, use a fork to gently separate and aerate the rice grains. Taste and adjust the seasoning with additional salt and pepper to your preference. Present the rice with wedges of lime for an added citrusy accent.


  • – For an extra touch of flavor, you can sauté the ginger in a teaspoon of oil before adding the water and rice.
    – Leftover ginger rice makes a great base for fried rice dishes.
