Bring the water to a boil in a medium-size pot with a lid. Add the rice, give it a stir then put the lid on and reduce the heat to a simmer. Cook the rice until tender, about 18 minutes. Once it’s ready, fluff the rice with a fork and stir in the scallions.
When the rice is about halfway done, place a large skillet over high heat with 2 turns of the pan of oil, about 2 tablespoons. While the pan is heating up, grab a small bowl and combine the hot sauce, lime juice, honey, tamari, vinegar, tomato sauce and cornstarch, stirring to dissolve the cornstarch. Set the sauce aside.
