From:, November 2017

Shrimp and rice get a tropical makeover in this healthy 400-calorie dinner. Instead of rice, we've combined riced cauliflower and coconut milk for light coconut rice topped with spicy shrimp and a juicy mango-avocado salsa to cool it all down. Squeeze on some fresh lime juice before digging in to take this easy meal to the next level.

This is really delicious, and I've made it a few times, it's a bit labor intensive, but worth it.

This was good. Added a bit of honey to the salsa and a bit of cayenne to the shrimp. It was not terribly filling, unfortunately, so I ended eating more than a serving, and then the calories get pretty high. Probably could cut the oil from the salsa and half the avocado

The salsa and the shrimp were the stars here. The salsa was outstanding. I added a little honey because the mangos I used weren't fully ripe. The cauliflower rice I'm not a big fan of, but with the addition of the coconut milk and toasted coconut, it was tastier than usual.

This was very good. It had great flavor and the serving size was very good and for the calorie amount, this will definitely be a do-over.
