Grilled Mango Coconut Rice

READY IN: 1hr 19mins
Recipe by Just_Ducky

I made this with my Make Ahead Meatballs, Make Ahead Pineapple Meatballs, the other night and I have a feeling I'll be cooking my rice with coconut milk a lot from now on. The rice can be made without the fruit as well, it is so delicious and creamy. This is a lovely side served with grilled chicken, fish or pork.

This basically plays like rice with mango salsa. The grilled mango makes the dish.
