This rice is absolutely fabulous. I eat rice everyday and was looking for something different. I'm amazed at just how good this simple recipe is. I used sesame oil and Jasmine rice. I also drizzled lime juice over the rice after it was finished. I think the cilantro and lime juice are essential. The only thing I will do differently next time is try it with two eggs instead of one. One egg doesn't seem too noticeable in the final dish and I think two will make it more like authentic fried rice.

I'm one of those people who hates/loves to cook. It's an obligation but I'm always willing to try some new recipe. I'm glad I tried this one. It was extra tasty and easy to make. I used canned crab meat and it was still a tasty treat!

Very good. And easy to make. And picturesque: all the green of the cilantro, green onions, lime, and cucumber is quite pretty. I've made it three times now, with jasmine. The smell when cooking is great: the scent of the jasmine combined with onions and garlic! mmmm... <br> I have some suggestions though: (1) If you're using dried cilantro, use more like a teaspoon. Dried cilantro is more dense and powerful than fresh, and this recipe calls for a tablespoon of fresh. (I made the mistake of using a tablespoon of dried once and that was way too much.) (2) The cucumbers don't add anything to (and I think even detract from) the flavor; I've skipped adding them after the first time I cooked this. (3) The lime flavor, however, does add something. It goes well, especially with the crab.

Overall, pretty good fried rice. I think the cilantro is what makes it; this is also what my mom likes to add in hers. I went all out and also chopped up some leftover lobster meat, for that extra bit of color & class. A dash of fish sauce and white pepper, along with some semi-hot peppers, gave it an extra zing that the original recipe lacked.

EXCELLENT! This is great with cucumber and lime, without cucumber and lime, with cucumber, without cucumber, with lime, without lime, I was truly amazed at how easy AND tasty!

Delicious stir fry. I used imitation crab meat which was very good. I think the cilantro really makes it. Would recommend any time!

I was very impressed with this. I was skeptical at first, but it really turns out beautifully and tastes fabulous. My fiance who adores fried rice from Chinese restaurants, loved this. I didn't see the point of the lime slices though. I squeezed a little lime juice on mine and it did nothing for the taste... so if you don't have lime for garnish, don't worry about it! :)

I loved this. I changed it to wild organic brown rice, and added more vegetables such as mushrooms, and orange bell peppers, and chopped up celery which I cooked in the oil along with the onions. I then used the mix in tomato wraps to make a delicous wrap. Before wrapping, I took sweet chili sauce (the asian style kind used for chicken) and spread that over the wrap for some zing. It made awesome and well loved wraps!!!
