Coconut Rice is a favorite in many countries. In this Colombian-inspired recipe, coconut milk and lime zest add flavor elements to this easy-to-prepare dish. Often served with fish and seafood, it is also wonderful with spicy foods. Great for any occasion.

- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup medium grain rice

Thank you for reviewing this recipe.
This was very good. It had just the perfect flavor of coconut without overpowering the rice. However, I used coconut milk instead of coconut water and it turned out perfect. I think I'm going to make this all the time now instead of regular rice. Yummy!!!
Easy, creamy and rich. I never have had coconut rice. This is sooooo good! Everyone will LOVE this great spin on everyday rice.
Excellent recipe. The texture and taste are great and so easy and quick to make. My family loved it. We have it for breakfast.
It was different , very easy to make. But not too crazy on it. We prefer southern style.
Nice twist on a simple dish
This was a very easy side dish to make. The hint of coconut was not too strong. I added the lime zest - but I don't think I would do that again. Very nice compliment to Shrimp.
