While the tomatoes are slowly cooking, prepare the Brown Rice (1 cup). Rinse the cup of brown rice with cold water.
Then add 1 1/2 cup water, Olive Oil (1 Tbsp) the zest of Lemon (1) and the juice of 1/2 lemon. Cook on very low heat until water is completely absorbed. Set aside.

Season the Red Snapper Fillets (1.1 lb) with Salt (to taste) and Ground Black Pepper (to taste), then slightly dust them in All-Purpose Flour (1/4 cup).
