In a large sauce pan heat the oil or butter over low heat.  Add rice and lime juice and stir for one minute.  Then add the water and salt.  Bring to a full rolling boil.  When boiling begins cover the pan and turn down on low heat and let simmer.  Let sit until rice is tender and water is absorbed.  This should take about 25 minutes.  Stir in cilantro and salt until thoroughly mixed.  Serve up and enjoy.
