Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup coconut milk
  • 3/4 cup chicken stock
  • 3/4 cup jasmine rice
  • 1/4 cup sweetened shredded coconut
  • 1 scallion thinly sliced
  • 2 tablespoons fresh ginger minced
  • 1/2 mango peeled and cut into cubes
  • 2 tablespoons mint chopped
  • 1/2 Fresno or red jalapeno chile seeded and minced
  • 1 teaspoon plus 1 tbsp. olive oil
  • 2 6 oz Mahi Mahi filets

Instructions

  • In a medium pan, bring the coconut milk, chicken stock, and 1/2 teaspoon of salt to a boil. Add the rice, coconut, scallion and 2 tablespoons of the ginger. Reduce the heat to low, cover and simmer for about 15-20 minutes or until the liquid is absorbed and the rice is tender. Turn off the heat and let it rest covered for 5 minutes. Fluff with a fork. Keep warm.
  • Meanwhile, in a small bowl, toss the mango, mint, chile, 1 tsp. oil and the remaining 1 tsp. ginger.
  • In a nonstick skillet, heat 1 tablespoon of oil over medium high heat. Season the fish with salt and pepper and cook about 2-3 minutes per side or until fish is cooked through.
  • Divide the rice between two plates, top with the fish and the salsa.

Notes

 
  • Jasmine rice - can use regular white rice, but jasmine is especially nice.
  • Shredded Sweetened Coconut - can use unsweetened.
  • Scallion - or green onion, can substitute chives.
  • Fresh Ginger - store in the freezer and easy grate it with a microplane.
  • Jalapeño Pepper - or a Fresno pepper - can leave the seeds in if you want it hotter.
  • Mahi Mahi - can substitute cod.
  • Mint - or cilantro or parsley.
