Coconut Corn Rice

I was in Jamaica in January and fell so in love with the coconut rice, I tracked down the chef and demanded the recipe. Of course, I did this after drinking much rum, so I wasn’t sure I would remember. Surprisingly, I did. My kids love it. It is wonderful with chicken and seafood. Hope you enjoy, mon!
