This recipe could not be easier to make– and the flavors of the rice infused with coconut milk and cilantro is out of this world!
We begin by first gently toasting some slivered almonds in a dry frying pan. We add the toasted almonds to a pot with basmati rice, coconut milk, lime juice and lime passion, scallions and fresh cilantro– plus water and kosher salt.
Simmer the rice until cooked– then fluff it with a fork and serve this coconut rice with an extra spray of sliced cilantro.
This easy side meal is great with those Asian barbecue wings, as well as other dishes such as our Gooey Ginger Chicken, Basil Chicken in Coconut Curry Sauce, or our Coconut Shrimp. And the tastes in this meal are versatile enough that it would be delicious with some Mexican-themed suppers!
