Alright. Show of hands. Who has cooked white rice in coconut milk?
No? Yes? Sound intriguing? It’s like my new favorite thing in the world. Right after guacamole and champagne of course.
In fact, I don’t just use coconut milk. I also throw in some lime zest, lime juice, chopped cilantro and a touch of salt. It’s bananas.
So good that I’m going to attempt it with quinoa next and see how it goes.
Ok so imagine a bowl filled with coconut rice and then topped with coconut curried glazed shrimp that have been sauteed in bunch of garlic, ginger and scallions. Ummm yes please. This Coconut Curried Shrimp with Coconut Rice is like my dream meal. It’s packed with flavor. Super delicious and it’s pretty light too, seeing as how I’m still keeping things light around here for the month of January.
Well… doesn’t that sound good? It’s a quick weeknight meal that you can scale up or down depending on how many people you’re planning on feeding. It’s kinda a crowd pleaser if you ask me. And it’s another dish that won’t take you too much time in the kitchen because I know you have more important things to go do, like watch the latest episodes of Scandal, Shameless, Revenge, Downton Abbey and House of Lies, right? No? You’re not a professional TV watcher like me? I don’t believe you. Especially when it comes to those shows! Can we just discuss how many amazing shows are on this coming Sunday? I’m going to have to stay up waaaay past my bedtime just so I can squeeze them all in before Monday. Because, I absolutely, under no circumstances, can go to bed without watching all of them. Why? Because what if I wake up in the morning, sign onto twitter or eonline.com or something like that and there’s a spoiler! GASP. I would be devastated. But then again, I have major issues.
So I’m just going to go on my merry way and make some more Coconut Curried Shrimp with Coconut Rice. It’s the right thing to do.
