I agree that this recipe is a bit sweet, so I just used 1 1/2 cups sugar. That is why I only gave it 4 stars. The extra lemon zest added to the simple syrup is a great idea! So is using a vegetable peeler. I would also remind everyone that most store bought lemons are coated with wax, so make sure you let them sit in VERY hot water first and rub off the wax. I use 1/2 a jigger of this in my Cosmopolitan drink and also make a sorbet with it. LOVE IT!

This was very easy to make. My family loved it. As with most recipes, taste is subjective. We like spicy, so I made a few changes. I used a mixture of vegetable broth and fish stock (I made the fish stock with the shrimp and lobster shells). Maybe 1/2 cup white wine? As suggested by another reviewer I used a 14 oz. can of Rotel Tomatoes, I would change that to 28 oz. I added 2 tsp. of HOT paprika, too. Could use more heat, even with that added. I would also suggest not stirring so much, makes the rice mushy. Don't get me wrong, we LOVED this recipe and would recommend this easy recipe to anyone! Plenty of food leftover.
