Buttery rice, infused with fresh squeezed lemon juice, minced garlic and cracked pepper makes this Garlic Lemon Pepper Rice the perfect side dish for any summertime meal.
This rice is SO good.
Garlic Lemon Pepper Rice reminds me SO much of shrimp scampi (minus the shrimp of course).
It is the perfect side dish served with grilled chicken or a steak or better yet, whip up some shrimp and in my opinion, you pretty much have shrimp scampi.
The smooth buttery flavor with the tartness of fresh squeezed lemon juice, cracked black pepper and garlic simply makes it the perfect addition to any meal.
