Shrimp Coconut Rice Recipe


Shrimp & Coconut Rice with Mango
Ingredients for 5 servings

  • avocado oil spray
  • 2 lb jumbo shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • pinch(s) of sea salt & pepper
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil (or avocado oil)
  • 1 cup white onion, diced
  • 1 tablespoon fresh ginger
  • 1 tablespoon lime zest
  • 1 1/4 cup uncooked jasmine rice
  • 1 can (13.5oz) lite coconut milk
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup raw bell pepper, diced
  • 1 cup mango, diced
  • chopped cilantro to taste
  1. Set a nonstick skillet on high heat.  Once hot, spray with avocado oil and toss in shrimp.  As the shrimp cooks, lightly sprinkle in sea salt & pepper.  Once the shrimp is plump and turned pink/white, remove the shrimp from the skillet and place the skillet back on the heat.
  2. Reduce heat to medium, add oil, onion and ginger and sauté until the onions turn  SLIGHTLY brown and translucent, about 3 minutes.  Be careful not to burn the onions or ginger.
  3. Add jasmine rice and stir so that each grain of rice is covered in oil, onion and ginger and toast the rice for 2 minutes.
  4. Pour in coconut milk and water.  Bring it to light simmer, then cover and cook until the liquid has been fully absorbed by the rice, about 25 – 35 minutes.
  5. Remove the rice from the heat once it is cooked to your satisfaction, then stir in cooked shrimp, diced bell peppers and diced mango.  Pro-tip: chop up the shrimp so each bite has a bit of shrimp in it!
  6. Mix everything together and enjoy!
