Coconut Rice

Coconut rice is a great complement to Thai-inspired dishes. Or spicy dishes. Or, you know, dishes that benefit from rice that is a notch above ordinary (salmon, for example). I find keeping a couple of cans of coconut milk in my pantry at all times is a great idea — it’s surprising how often I need this staple.

This flavorful rice is perfect with spicy dishes and fish.



  1. Rinse and drain the rice in several washes of water (this removes the starchy coating). Place the rice in a medium saucepan.
  2. Add the water, coconut milk, and salt (not too much here!). Bring to a boil.
  3. Cover the pan, lower the heat, and simmer for 15 − 20 minutes.
  4. Remove from heat, and let stand for at least five minutes, longer if you have time. Serve.
