Toasted-Coconut Rice

Here’s the perfect side dish! I love basmati rice & I love coconut so this was on my “To Make ASAP” list & posted on my fridge. I paired this delightful side dish with a baked salmon fillet coated with a spicy rub. The contrasting flavours of spicy & slightly sweet perfectly complimented each other & this was such an easy meal to make.
