Lets face it Commander McGarrett pretty much has it together with the swagger, quick thinking, tough demeanor a pure joy to behold. So creating a side dish that can rival this may be a challenge. It still must taste good and remain playful. I think that this rice dish might just do that , it is nutty, with a unique flavor, easy to make, and tastes amazing. Give it a try and let me know what you think and how close to the McGarrett mark I actually came.
