I had a similar rice bowl on vacation and recreated this lighter version at home. It takes me back to the islands every time I make it. Try grilling your shrimp for more beachy flavor. —Lauren Katz, Ashburn, Virginia

"We liked this one! It was a nice change from the usual. Use coconut oil instead of canola for more island flavor. Does need a bit more flavor but otherwise we'll be making this again."
