Place coconut milk, 1 cup water and rice in a medium saucepot and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover and simmer 45 to 50 minutes or until all liquid is absorbed and rice is tender. Remove from heat and let stand, covered, 10 minutes then fluff with a fork.

Meanwhile, heat a large skillet over medium-high heat until hot. Add shallot, asparagus and red pepper and cook 3 minutes or until vegetables are beginning to brown, stirring. Stir in 1/4 cup water. Add shrimp, pineapple and lime juice, cover and cook 6 to 7 minutes or until shrimp are just opaque throughout and vegetables are tender, stirring several times. Stir in cilantro and serve over rice.
