Coconut Rice

1 1/2 cups coconut milk

1 cup water

1 tsp. salt

1 tsp. sugar

1 cup long grain white rice

1/4 cup shredded coconut

3 tbsp. fresh cilantro, chopped

Salt and Pepper to taste

Use 1 1/2 Tbs. dried Cilantro in place of the fresh.

In a saucepan, combine the coconut milk, water, salt and sugar. Bring to a boil. Add the rice, stir well and reduce the heat to medium-low. Cover and simmer undisturbed until the liquid is absorbed and the rice is fluffy, about 20-25 minutes.

Remove from heat and let sit without stirring for 10 minutes. Fluff with a fork and add the coconut and cilantro. Season with salt and pepper.

This goes excellent with cashew and mustard seared sea bass. :lol:
