    ellie_'s Note:

    A different rice that's delicious with island-type kabobs or other Carribean dishes. I think this will also be good with some pineapple tidbits and/or cherries added. Recipe source: Turtle Bay Cookbook

      My husband and children loved this!!! Have made other ones and never really went over as well! I had a can of fat-free coconut milk on hand so I used that and just added enough water to make the needed two cups. I also added a little more lime juice and a little zest. Will keep this one on hand.

      What a great recipe! It had a wonderful, light flavor that went perfectly with our supper of jerk chicken, mango salsa and black beans. Who knew making coconut milk was so easy? I made a half recipe and it did make about 3-4 servings. It cooked up perfectly--nice and fluffy. So glad I chose this recipe to make! I will definitely make again. Edited to add: Made again and, being lazy, used canned coconut milk. I definitely DO NOT recommend this. From now on, I will always make my own milk as it made the dish sweeter. Also, this last time was very salty, so note to self, use less salt!
