Lemon & Herb Crusted Barramundi

Lemon & Herb Crusted Barramundi

Barramundi is a mild fish with a buttery flavor and delicate, flaky texture and is a good substitute for red snapper or Chilean sea bass. Barramundi boasts high levels of omega 3s and scores extra points for sustainability and affordability.


Zest of 1 Lemon

1/2 Teaspoon Chili Powder

1 Tablespoon Fresh Thyme Leaves

2 Tablespoons Chopped Flat Leaf Parsley

1 Tablespoon Olive Oil

1 Teaspoon Kosher Salt

1 Teaspoon Freshly Ground Pepper

12 Ounces Barramundi Fillets

Season barramundi fish with lemon zest, chili powder thyme, and parsley. Cover with plastic wrap and place in fridge for 15 minutes. Add olive oil to large sauté pan and heat over a medium-high heat for 3 minutes. Remove fish from fridge and season both sides with kosher salt and pepper. Place fish in pan and cook for 4 to 5 minutes. Turn fish over, lower heat to medium-low, and cook until fish is no longer translucent and flakes with a fork. Be sure not to overcook. Serves 2
