    echo echo's Note:

    Came across this at the Newman's Own website. Chicken and pineapple salsa and red curry paste--three of my favorites together! They say if necessary you can substitute 1 tsp curry powder plus 1 tsp chili powder for the red curry paste in the recipe. Don't mistake cream of coconut for unsweetened coconut milk. Cooking time is time to both cook and chill rice (although I would make the rice in a rice cooker rather than on the stove and omit the salt).

      Delicious Echo just delicious. This Thai fried rice is the bomb. I love the addition of the pineapple salsa, I'd never tired it before in rice. I followed your recipe but made my own coconut milk and added minced fresh ginger and some leftover jumbo shrimp to the dish. Thai is my favourite cusine and I love red curry, so this dish was screaming out my name. Thanks for sharing this tasty tasty treat, which I will be enjoying often...kudos

      Wonderful fusion of ingredients. Sweet and spicy, but not too spicy. I used a peach, pinapple, chipotle salsa and lite coconut milk. Very tasty and quick use for leftover rice.

      I'm going to make this tonight for my Mom for Mother's day. The ingredient list is missing the garlic. I went to the Newman's Own website & found it. It should list 1 clove of garlic, minced. Thanks.
