Brazilian Red Snapper and Lemon Rice

Looking for a way to spice up your love life? Let's be honest, we all have fantasies. Some are more out there than others. I think for the most part we keep those fantasies private. But is that really fair? I mean how can your significant other fulfill your dreams and fantasies if you don't share them? I know sometimes it is embarrassing or you may feel judged. 
Romantic Tip: Each of you should make a list of romantic fantasies to share with each other. If you are afraid of being judged or embarrassed, ask your partner to read them in private. Take a leap of faith in your partner today and make this love the best ever.

Today I have a recipe for the best meal I have ever made. It is spicy just like my man likes it!

Brazilian Red Snapper and Lemon Rice for 2
adapted from Apple Mint

2 Red Snapper fish fillets 
For the Marinade:
5 tbsp white vinegar
7-8 dried red chillis deseeded and soaked
4-5 whole black peppercorns
2 tsp cumin seeds
3 tbsp chopped garlic
½ tsp sugar
1 tbsp coriander
½ tsp turmeric
Salt to taste

For the Lemon rice:

1 TBSP canola oil
1 cup basmati rice
1 large red onion chopped
1 tsp mustard seeds

1/2 tsp curry powder
1 jalapeno chopped
2 bay leaves
½ tsp turmeric
Juice of 1 lemon
Salt to taste

Handful of chopped cilantro

For the fish marinade:

Add all the ingredients in a food processor, Blend till it forms a smooth paste. Massage it on to the fish and leave for about an hour. 
For the Lemon Rice:
Cook your rice according to the directions on the package (usually it is one cup of rice to 2 cups water and 1tsp salt).
Prepare your ingredients.
Take a frying pan, and heat the oil over medium high heat. 
Add the mustard seeds and when they begin to splutter, add the bay leaves, onions, and jalapeno. 
Fry for about 2 minutes and add then add the rice. 
Sprinkle the salt, curry, and turmeric and mix well. Fry for about 5 minutes more on medium flame. Turn off the heat now, add the lemon juice and cilantro and mix well.
For the fish, Slice your filets in half, to make 4. My filets were very large and would not fit into the pan otherwise. Add oil to a hot skillet. Add your marinated snapper. Cook for about 2 minutes on each side on high heat, or until cooked through.
 Serve on a bed of hot lemon rice.
