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.

  • Heat 1 tablespoon oil, coconut milk and the remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the cauliflower and cook, stirring occasionally, until softened, about 5 minutes. Transfer to a large bowl and stir in coconut flakes. Wipe out the pan.
