Coconut Lime Rice

 A light and creamy coconut rice is an easy and flavorful accompaniment to a grilled seafood dinner. Here, rice cooks in a base of coconut milk, water, and salt until tender and fluffy. The recipe is mostly hands-off, so if you're serving this as a side, you have plenty of time to focus on your main entree.  

This coconut lime rice has a subtly sweet and nutty flavor from the coconut, well-balanced by the acidity of lime juice. I mix it with a healthy helping of fresh cilantro for added brightness. What I love about this rice is that it's almost as fast as cooking plain white rice, but it stands on its own as a side dish with all of these additional flavor elements.
