1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup fresh lime juice
1 tablespoon each: Worcestershire sauce, sugar, soy sauce

Heat water to boil in saucepan over high heat; stir in rice and salt. When water returns to a boil, reduce heat to a simmer. Cover; allow to simmer, 20 minutes.

For the sauce, whisk lime juice, Worcestershire, sugar, soy sauce, ginger, garlic and cayenne together in small bowl.
