Mango Ceviche with Coconut Lime Rice

So, I went a little wild with this dish. All this snow has me anxiously feeling all the coconut lime and mango vibes summer will eventually bring. Luscious coconut key lime rice, sweet and spicy mango chili pico de gallo, chili lime shrimp, crisp cucumber, and velvet avocados... is there anything that could go wrong?! This bright, fresh, and acidic dish had that sweet and spicy profile that I adore and was everything I could ever have imagined. Best served with your favorite michelada recipe. Enjoy.

Coconut Rice Ingredients:

2 cups jasmine rice

1 3/4 cups water

1 can 1 3/4 cups coconut milk

zest and juice of 1 key lime

1/2 tsp. salt

Coconut Rice Instructions:

Mix water, coconut milk, and salt in saucepan and bring to a boil. Stir in rice, cover and lower heat to a simmer for 15-20 minutes until most of the liquid is absorbed and rice is tender

Remove from heat and allow to sit, covered, for another five minutes. Set aside and let cool.
