SHRIMP!! I don't know who the first human to eat one was, but THANK YOU! The reason I say that is simple. Have you really ever looked at a whole shrimp? Who was it that said, "Ooo Wee! I'm gonna eat one of these!"? It had to be a dare. Shoot. It had to be a double dog dare! I'm so glad they did!
Anyway, you have to get your shrimp naked for this party! Peel 'em! I love Harris Teeter's shrimp. Watch for when these babies are on sale, then stock the freezer.
Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. (a skillet you have a lid for!) Add green onions and garlic. Saute for a couple of minutes.
Measure out the coconut milk and water to come up with a total of 3 1/2 cups combined. Add this to the skillet and stir.
When this boils add rice, carrots, and salt. Cover and reduce heat to simmer for 12 minutes.
During this period zest your lime.
