    This was really good! I didn't have the mango peach salsa or the coconut flakes, but I did add the pinch of ginger, didn't really taste it though, it just blended in. The rice was really creamy, but I thought it could have tasted more like coconut, something was missing, I might make this again and play around with it!

    The directions above states (1. preheat oven to 350 preheat broiler to high for rice: melt butter in an oven safe dutch oven.) Is a bit confusing! I cooked the rice on the stovetop. I did use all 4 tablespoons butter which should be cut down in half. The recipe doesn`t state how much cajun mix to use so so I used 2 teaspoons of my own mix for the shrimp. I served this with wasbi sauce #89827. This dish has lots of good flavor.The rice comes out creamy white I don`t know if you can see that in the picture. The lime is just so nice in this I think next time I`ll use just lime. Sandy thanks for posting this delish recipe.
