Mango Coconut Jasmine Rice
Something about turning our clocks forward, longer daylight and warm spring days made me go looking for summer recipes. Simple dishes that can be put together. Mango Coconut RIce is a dish I discovered a few years back and make often in the summer. This is a great side dish for any type of grilled fish or chicken even a stir fry.
The coconut milk adds a rich depth to the rice and the lime brings a subtle tang to the dish. This rice is moist, light and flavorful. The mango is a great addition to rice.
Mango Coconut Rice
1 cup jasmine rice
3/4 cup coconut milk ( I used light)
3/4 cup water
Zest and juice of one lime
1/2 cup diced mango
1/4 teaspoon Kosher salt
Rinse the rice. Mix together rice, coconut milk, water, lime & salt. Cook rice as directed. I have a great microwave rice cooker that I use.
When the rice is cooked stir in the mango and serve.
Toasted Cashews are a great addition to this too! Stir in 1/4 cup of toasted cashews for a crunchy, salty, sweet combination.
