We LOVE Shrimp Scampi but now that the weather is warmer, I wanted to add a tropical twist to it. So tonight, I made Shrimp Scampi with Peach Mango Sauce along with Coconut Rice! It's still got the buttery taste but also some brightness from the fruit. As for the coconut rice, it couldn't be easier. Just substitute half of the water for unsweetened coconut milk and cook it just like any normal rice. It comes out so flavorful and creamy, you'll think you're eating coconut risotto! Best Friday night dinner EVER!
