Food Tales – Coconut Shrimp Rice


My name is Eunice, I’m a young, smart and vibrant lady, born and raised in Lagos and have virtually lived all my life here from my childhood to adulthood. I run an NGO and I love eating like every other human being does. Yes, I love to eat and my favorite meal is Coconut Shrimp Rice. I love this meal specially because of its unique and unequal taste of coconut and shrimps all in one meal.

As a Lagos babe, I’d always prefer my special delicacy just like the sun needs not to be told that it shouldn’t rise from the south but the east. The worth of this meal cannot be overrated so it doesn’t seem like pride to some people. Lolzz! Let me share an insight about this meal a bit with you. When making the food, you must not forget the power and the presence of crayfish in the meal because that’s one of the major ingredients that makes the food wholesome and very delicious. Please feel free to see how it’s being done below:



1 Cup of parboiled white rice

Coconut milk extract or tin

Blended fresh pepper with onions

Fried chicken

Seasoned shrimps

Onions (chopped)

Chicken stock

Vegetable oil

Salt to taste

Spring onions (chopped)

Ground crayfish

Cooking seasoning
