Coconut Lime Rice

Inspired by a similar dish I had at "Y Arriba! Y Arriba! Tapas-Teatro", my Coconut Lime Rice pairs nicely with tropical main dishes. I've enjoyed this rice dish with Coconut Lime Chicken Nuggets and  Chicken made with Mojito Marinade.

After the rice is cooked, it is relatively quick to make and a nice change from plain white rice.

Tip: For a healthier version of this recipe, give Coconut Lime Rice a try using Whole Grain rice and light coconut milk (for fewer calories).

Coconut Lime Rice

Back when I lived in California, there was a tapas restaurant at Downtown Disney called "Y Ariba! yariba!" and they had this coconut-lime rice that was like nothing I've ever had before. Sadly, they closed down. If they hadn't, it'd be on my places-to-visit list whenever I am in California because it was just that good.
