Contributed by: News Canada

(NC) - This warm, creamy rice is infused with coconut milk and toasty almonds. The natural sweetness of almonds and coconut marries well with the spicy chili sauce on the shrimp.

Ingredients:

    Thai Shrimp With Coconut-Almond Rice
  • 1/2 cup (125 mL) slivered almonds, toasted
  • 2 cups (500 mL) jasmine rice
  • 1 cup (235 mL) water
  • 1 cup (235 mL) light coconut milk
  • 1 tablespoon (15 mL) canola oil
  • 1 pound (454 g) shelled and deveined frozen shrimp, thawed
  • 1/4 cup (60 mL) prepared Thai-style chili sauce
  • Chopped scallions to garnish

Directions:

Place almonds in a single layer in a dry skillet, and turn heat to medium.  Toast, stirring occasionally, until almonds are golden brown, 4 to 5 minutes and set aside. Prepare rice according to package instructions, replacing half the water with coconut milk.

In a saute pan, heat 1 tablespoon (15 mL) oil and cook shrimp until pink, 3 to 4 minutes. Add chili sauce and stir until heated throughout. Stir almonds into cooked rice and top with shrimp mixture and fresh scallions. Serve.
