Caribbean Fish And Sweet Potato Casserole

Sweet potatoes are loaded with vitamin A, and by using canned sweet potatoes, this gives you three times more Vitamin A than if you used fresh, in every serving of this quick and easy island-spiced, one-pot dinner. The flavor is slightly exotic – a combination of sweet and spicy (not too hot) with a subtle tang of tomato – but with whole-family appeal. Rinsing the rice before cooking it helps it cook faster, but if you would rather skip that step, dinner will just take another five minutes on the stove.
