  1. In the slow cooker, whisk together the broth, coconut milk, curry paste, lime zest, lime juice, fish sauce, garlic, and gingerroot. Stir in the green beans, bamboo shoots, roasted peppers, and green onions. Cook, covered, on low for 3 to 3 1/2 hours or on high for 1 1/2 to 2 hours.
  2. Quickly stir in the fish and re-cover the slow cooker. Cook for 30 minutes on low or 15 minutes on high, or until the fish flakes easily when tested with a fork.
  3. About 15 minutes before serving time, prepare the rice using the package directions, omitting the salt and margarine.
  4. To serve, spoon the rice into shallow bowls. Place a fish fillet on each serving of rice. Spoon the green bean mixture around the fish. Ladle the cooking liquid over all. Garnish with the basil and cilantro.

Cooking Tip: You can prepare the rice up to two to three days in advance. It will keep, covered, in the refrigerator. Microwave it with 1 to 2 tablespoons of water in a covered microwaveable bowl on 100 percent power (high) for 2 to 3 minutes to reheat it.
