    I'm eating this right now, it's absolutely great! The flavours go together really well. I added a splash of rum when putting in the rice to give it an extra Jamaican kick  -  26 Jul 2011


    This was a great dish to go along with Jamaican Jerked Chicken. I used 1/2 coconut milk and 1/2 water to cook the rice. Just perfect taste to go along with the spicyness of the main dish.  -  10 Jul 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    mmmm, definitely briliiant. would keep this recipe. I used shrimp in mine, and also added a dab of salt and pepper. like other reviewers it is definitely a different taste, but real good. Other modifications; i used basmati rice and steamed the rice first till done. Then stir fried the cooked rice with the other ingredients. I also used coconut milk in part to cook the rice.  -  07 Jul 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
