Wonderful dish Bev!!! The unusual mix of flavors was just great! The only thing I did different than the recipe was to only put 1/4tsp cayenne pepper because I knew my kids couldn't handle anymore. I cooked my shrimp in boiling water for 3 minutes and then threw them in the crockpot with the snow peas - I only let them cook for another 15-20 minutes because I didn't want the shrimp to be overcooked. I would definitely call this more of an adult dish - my 8 year olds ate it but didn't care for it much so I'll probably entertain adults with it next time so others can enjoy it as much as we did! (It makes quite a bit.) Thanks for sharing this keeper.
This is an amazing recipe! I've made it twice and it just keeps getting better! I accidentally tried jasmine rice also and boy did that ruin the entire pot. I love it so much I went directly to the store, purchased my ingredients...again, and started over. I made a couple of changes. I added half a bag of diced carrots. I found this made for a crunchier texture. I also added a cup of chopped celery instead of snow peas. I toasted enough coconut to sprinkle on for each meal. It was so quick and easy. Thanks so much for this flavorful addition to my cookbook.
I made this recipe for a dinner party. I clearly do not know what converted rice is. Because the rice turned out like a pile of mush. It was disgusting. I probably should have tried it out before the party. The flavor in this recipe is amazing, I made it just as prescribed minus the coconut because I didn't know if everyone liked coconut. I had it on the table so it could be added. Everyone loved the flavor just not the texture.
