If you’re used to cooking fillets, preparing whole fish may seem overwhelming. However, you can buy gutted and deboned whole fish in your home delivery of seafood so cooking it could be easier than you think! And it can be served with just a salad to keep the dish really simple.
One of the easiest methods is to bake whole fish in foil. This allows the flesh to cook slowly, retaining its delicate texture. You can also pan-roast fish, or why not add it to the barbie for a delicious smoky flavour?
Follow our barramundi recipes. This fish is a healthy choice as it contains the highest levels of omega-3 fatty acids found in any white fish. It’s also packed with protein and low on calories.
Baking draws out all the flavours of the fish and spices, making it a delicious and easy dish.
- Preheat your oven to 180 degrees Celsius.
- Place the barramundi on foil and pat dry with a paper towel.
- Make three diagonal cuts across the barramundi and sprinkle the ginger, onions and garlic over the fish.
- Rub the mixture into the cuts along with the seasoning.
- Combine the soy sauce, sesame oil and some freshly ground black pepper in a small bowl and pour over the barramundi.
- Wrap the fish up with the foil and seal the sides.
- Bake in the oven for 30-40 minutes.
- Remove from oven, open the foil carefully and sprinkle the bean sprouts and coriander over the top. Serve with lemon wedges.
This dish looks impressive and is oozing with all the flavours of the Orient.
- Make 3 cuts on the skin side of the fish fillet.
- Heat oil in a pan and season the fish with salt and pepper. Place in the pan and cook on high for 1-2 minutes, then repeat on the other side. Then put the dish in the oven and cook for 12-15 minutes or until cooked. Squeeze lemon juice over.
- Cut the pak choi into quarters and cook with the soybeans in a saucepan of boiling water for 2 minutes. Drain and toss with olive oil.
- Arrange the pak choi and beans on a serving plate and place the barramundi on top. Finely slice the shallots and scatter over the fish.
- Heat the sesame oil in a pan until smoking, then ladle over the top of the barramundi.
