Coconut and Mango Rice

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Chef Mean Green

I was watching an episode of Paula Deen and this was one of the recipes premiered on the show. I have yet to make it, but it sounds delicious. She had made this with Zesty Grilled Tilapia, Homemade Salsa, and Bloody Mary with a Kick. Thanks Paula Deen!

Reviewed for PAC Spring '08: This didn't turn out quite how I was hoping. I followed the directions exactly, simmering the rice for 20 minutes on my stovetop's lowest setting. The bottom was rather burned, but I was able to salvage most of the dish. It was ok. It wasn't very "coconutty," but that might have been because it burned. I loved the pops of sweetness from the mango. When I try this again, I'll simmer it for 15 minutes. Thank you for posting! I'm excited to try this again!
