Coconut Lime Jasmine Rice w/ Zesty Grilled Shrimp

Coconut Lime Jasmine Rice w/ Zesty Grilled Shrimp

Jasmine rice - truly one of my new fave foods! I cannot get enough. It is aromatic, slightly sweet and absolutely delicious. It goes so well with so many dishes. This recipe isn't just regular jasmine rice (although that is great too) - it is COCONUT LIME JASMINE RICE. This recipe is super tasty with a touch of sweetness and a little zing from the lime. Seriously cannot recommend this combo enough. This is a great option for a side dish at your holiday table, a weeknight dinner or even the main event with shrimp (as I made here). I hope you guys enjoy! 

For this recipe, I used Riceland Foods Jasmine Rice. It is incredible tasting and high quality that I can trust. Riceland Foods is American grown rice and supports thousands of farmers across the country distribute rice across the world. Plus, they have been making rice for nearly 100 years!

Coconut Lime Jasmine Rice with Shrimp

So here is what you need for this recipe:

  • Jasmine Rice: But of course! The good stuff aka Riceland Jasmine Rice.
  • Coconut Milk: I use full fat here. It gives it the best full body flavor! 
  • Shrimp: I personally like to get fresh shrimp from the seafood section of the grocery store. Frozen also works great if that is the only option. Look out for wild caught! 
  • Limes: for that zest, you know 🙂
  • Paprika Seasoning or Chili Lime Seasoning: For the shrimp to make it spicy!
  • Scallions: Make for a great garnish.
  • Avocado Oil: Best for high heat cooking the shrimp in the cast iron skillet.
