2-serving instructions (4-serving modifications in red)

Wash produce before use


Cook the coconut-garlic brown rice

  • Finely chop, press, or grate the garlic.

In a small sauce pot, combine the rice, garlic, and 1 cup [1¾ cups] water. Bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer, cover, and cook until the rice is tender and the liquid is absorbed, 25 to 30 minutes. Remove from the heat, stir in the coconut milk, cover, and keep warm. While the water is heating and the rice is cooking, prepare the pickled carrots.


Pickle the carrots

  • Zest and juice the lime, keeping the zest and juice separate; set aside the zest for garnish.
  • Finely chop the cilantro.

In a medium bowl, combine the carrots, lime juice, and cilantro. Season with salt and up to 1 teaspoon [2 tsp] sugar (from your pantry), if using, and toss to coat. Let stand, stirring occasionally, while you prepare the rest of the meal.


Prep and cook the seafood

For shrimp:

  • Rinse and drain the shrimp. Pat dry on a paper-towel-lined plate. Season generously with pepper. On a plate, toss the shrimp with the Balinese spice blend until well coated.


For fish:

  • Pat the fish dry with a paper towel. Cut the fish into 1-inch pieces; season generously with pepper. On a plate, toss the fish with the Balinese spice blend until well coated.


In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 2 to 3 teaspoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add the seafood and cook, turning once, until firm and cooked through, 1 to 2 minutes per side for regular shrimp, 2 to 3 minutes per side for jumbo shrimp, and 3 to 5 minutes per side for fish. Remove from the heat, add the tamari-honey glaze, and toss to coat; season to taste with salt and pepper.


Transfer the coconut-garlic rice to individual bowls. Top with the seafood and pickled carrots, garnish with the lime zest, and serve.
