How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat broiler.

Step 2

Bring 2 cups water to a boil in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat.

Step 3

If using Uncle Ben's Boil in Bag, drop in bag, and boil 10 minutes; remove from bag and add coconut. Reduce heat to low. Simmer, covered, 5 minutes. Turn off heat; stir in beans, and set aside. (If using regular quick cooking brown rice, add rice and coconut to boiling water. Reduce heat to low. Simmer, covered, 5 minutes. Turn off heat; stir in beans, and set aside.)

Step 4

While rice cooks, combine salt, allspice, thyme, and cayenne pepper in a small bowl; set aside.

Step 5

Arrange fish on a baking sheet. Drizzle oil over fish. Sprinkle half of seasoning mixture over fish; turn fish over, and sprinkle with remaining seasoning.

Step 6

Broil for 5–6 minutes or until fish flakes easily with a fork.

Step 7

While fish broils, combine chutney, banana, scallions, and cilantro in a small bowl. Serve rice and bean mixture topped with fish and chutney mixture.

I would like to try this recipe but I'm pretty sure it should have banana in it. The recipe also references scallions. I don't see either on the ingredients list...

First, please note the typo. You broil the fish 5 to 6 minutes and not 56. Second, the spice mix is excellent and so I doubled the amount and it was perfect. Third, the bean mixture needs more coconut and also needs salt. These adjustments made it a huge hit with the family. Would make this again.
