Here's a Brazilian recipe that's hugely popular amongst those that live by the coast. While the key ingredient is the freshest of fish, the huge flavour is added through the jalapenos, cumin seeds and turmeric root among other spices which we have pounded into a fragrant paste.  This is what brings a warm, spicy and sweet flavour to the coconut milk while the aromatic garnish completes the dish by providing a lovely texture with desiccated coconut and dried red chilli.
