Three rules to have an incredible date night:

Keep it simple, yet flavorful and vibrant with colors. Be thoughtful about the presentation and creating the right mood.

Keep portions smaller so you can save room for dessert.

Put your phone away. (After you take a shot for Instagram and brag to your friends)

Prepare dinner at home for a date night, and show her how much you care. It’s very easy and quick to prepare, anyone can, so you certainly won’t screw anything up. Besides, the taste is perfect.

Cook wild rice following the instructions on the packaging. When the rice is cooked, set it aside to cool. Season sea bass with sea salt, pepper and oregano on both sides of the fish. Cook sea bass fillets in a nonstick skillet on coconut oil or olive oil, until it’s easily flaked with a fork. Tip: Do not flip the fish until it’s completely cooked on the bottom side, so that the fish does not fall apart.

In a bowl, mix pineapples, cucumbers, habanero paper, balsamic vinegar, cilantro, fresh orange juice, pepper and sea salt. Mix wild rice with garlic butter or paste and slivered almonds. 

Serve on your fancy plates. Add fish on rice, and top with salsa. It will look impressive on the plate.

This recipe will help you plan the perfect romantic date night dinner. If you want to make it even more special, make a dessert.
