1
Rinse the jasmine rice under cold water using a fine mesh sieve until the water runs clear. Allow to drain thoroughly.
2
Toast the drained jasmine rice in a medium non-stick saucepan over medium heat until it starts to get lightly golden. This will enhance its flavor.
3
Pour the coconut milk and water into the saucepan then add salt. Stir to combine then bring to a boil.
4
Once boiling, reduce heat to low, cover the saucepan, and let it simmer. Cook until all the water is absorbed, about 17 - 20 minutes. Don't worry if you see a few small pools of liquid remaining.
5
Remove the saucepan from heat and let the rice rest, covered, for 15 minutes.
6
While the rice is resting, toast the shredded coconut in a dry pan over medium heat, stirring frequently, until it is a light golden brown. Then set aside to cool.
7
Uncover the rice, fluff with a fork, then stir in lime zest and toasted coconut before serving.
