  1. Rinse the rice thoroughly under cold water until the water is clear, then drain well.
  2. In a large skillet, heat coconut oil and butter over medium-high heat. Add the rice and coconut flakes, cooking and stirring for about 3 to 4 minutes.
  3. Stir in the lime juice, followed by the coconut milk, chicken broth, lime zest, and salt. Bring the mixture to a gentle boil.
  4. Lower the heat to a simmer, cover the skillet, and cook for 20 minutes.
  5. Remove from heat and let it sit, covered, for an additional 5 minutes.
  6. Fluff the rice with a fork and season with pepper before serving.
