Create this Dish
Pour the can of coconut milk into a small saucepan, along with the water. Bring to a boil and add rice. Simmer on low until the rice has been completely cooked.
Dice the pineapple, cucumbers, and jalepeno into small pieces for the salsa. Squeeze on top the lime and lemeon juices and a little honey. Let the salsa marinate in the fridge until ready to serve.
Pat the tilapia fillets dry. Season with salt and pepper on both sides, then lightly coat the fish in flour. Fry in hot olive oil until the fish has been cooked through and is perfectly seared.
Layer the coconut rice on a plate with the tilapia fillet on top. Finish off with the cucumber pineapple salsa. Enjoy!
