    Babushka's Note:

    A light dish that is wonderful for summertime or for dreaming about being at the shore. It blends the flavors of coconut, pineapple, and banana that complement each other so well. I use cooked tail-off shrimp and canned pineapple as it makes the preparation much shorter

      Pleasant but bland. I agree with Ausie mum 2_2 it is lacking flavor. It is a good foundation. Just salt at the table perked it up. I may use this as a base to build something.

      We enjoyed the sweetness of this recipe, especially the banana which was blended in nicely in little chunks and added a nice surprise amongst the pineapple and shrimp (I used good sized prawns)not too keen on the rice which was a bit lacking in flavour but I guess it went with the dish. Something different and tasty. Thanks
