Persian orange rice recipe?

My boyfriend took me to a Kosher Persian restaurant a few days ago for a delicious dinner. We ordered the grilled fish kebobs that were served with salad, grilled tomato and two types of rice; plain Basmati and a fragrant, flavorful orange peel rice. It was not Jeweled rice as there were no colors or fruit other than what I believe was lightly candied oange peel and perhaps some slivered almonds. I can't stop thinking about that rice. Can anyone supply me with a recipe?

          Restaurant is called Colbeh. I wwnt to the one in Great Neck NY, but I was also at one in Manhattan and there might be another in Cedarhurst. Great food, btw.
