Recipe Ingredients for Thai shrimp

1/2 cup shredded coconut
1 cup chicken stock
1/2 cup long grain white rice
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 pound shrimp
1/2 red bell pepper, seeded and thinly sliced
1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1 cloves garlic
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 cup basil
1 tablespoon lime zest
2 tablespoons lime juice

Recipe Directions for Thai shrimp

  1. Toast coconut in a saucepan over medium heat until it turns golden brown. Reserve 1/4 cup for garnish.

  2. To the remaining coconut in the saucepan, add the chicken stock, rice and salt, and bring it to a boil. Once at a boil, reduce the heat to a simmer, place a lid on top and cook for 15 minutes. Let the mixture stand for five minutes off the heat then fluff with a fork.

  3. While the rice is cooking, preheat a large, nonstick skillet over high heat with a little cooking spray. When the pan is hot, add the shrimp, red bell peppers, chili (or red pepper flakes) and garlic, stirring frequently for about 3-4 minutes.

  4. Add the soy sauce & basil and toss to combine. Serve the shrimp and some of the sauce over the coconut rice and squeeze some lime juice over everything. Garnish with the reserved toasted coconut and the lime zest.
