Blacken Salmon with Coconut Mango Rice.

Kathy Williams


This turned out to be so delicious. My son said Wow and proceeded to eat all the left overs. This rice will go well with spicy curries, and other spicy dishes. Could be easily made into a really nice rice pudding. Without the peas of course.
