NUTRITION INFO
Ingredients
  • Cooking spray
  • 3/4 cup coconut water
  • 3/4 cup jasmati or other long-grain rice
  • Zest of 1 lime (removed with a vegetable peeler), plus wedges for serving
  • 1/2 cup shredded carrots
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped red onion or scallions
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 1 pound large shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 cup sweetened shredded coconut
  • 3/4 cup panko breadcrumbs
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
Directions
  • Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Line a rimmed baking sheet with foil and set a wire rack on top; coat with cooking spray. Combine 1 cup water, the coconut water, rice and lime zest in a medium saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to medium low; cover and simmer 8 minutes. Remove from the heat; add the carrots, red onion, 1/4 teaspoon salt and a few grinds of pepper (do not stir). Cover and let sit 10 minutes, then fluff with a fork to combine. Discard the lime zest.

  • Meanwhile, season the shrimp with salt and pepper. Beat the egg and 2 tablespoons water in a bowl. Combine the coconut and panko in another bowl. Dip the shrimp in the egg mixture, then the coconut-panko mixture, gently pressing to adhere; transfer to the prepared rack. Bake until the shrimp are cooked through, about 10 minutes.

  • Turn on the broiler. Broil the shrimp until golden brown, 1 to 2 minutes. Add the cilantro to the rice mixture and toss. Serve with the shrimp and lime wedges.
