Coconut Lime Rice Recipe

To go with our half-price Peri Peri Half Free Range Chicken, I wanted to share this Coconut Lime Rice recipe which is so quick and easy to make and tastes fantastic. 

Serves 4


1 tablespoon unsalted butter
1 cup long grain white RICE
1 cup water
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 lime, juice and zest
fresh coriander (for serving, optional)


    1. In a large saucepan over medium heat, melt the butter, then add the rice and cook, stirring, for 1-2 minutes. 
    2. Add the coconut milk, water, salt, pepper, lime juice, and lime zest and bring to a boil.  
    3. Reduce the heat to low, cover and cook for 15 minutes, or until the liquid is absorbed and the rice is tender.  
    4. Remove the pan from the heat and let stand for 5-10 minutes.  
    5. Fluff the rice with a fork, garnish with cilantro if you like, and serve.
