Wow what a great meal, we had. I used collosal shrimp in this dish and wasn't sorry. The rice was incredible, just a little creamy. I really enjoyed the addition of carrot and tomato to the dish. The most predominent flavor is the coconut. I must admit that I used lite coconut milk, it worked great in this dish and didn't affect the flavor at all. Thanks for sharing this recipe, I will be making this again. Made for the Pool Party 2010 in the Diabetes Forum.
