Australia's Best Farmed Barramundi

Saltwater Barramundi Recipes

We love Barramundi! It has a mild, delicate flavor, high healthy oil content, is rich in Omega 3 and is highly versatile on the menu. Its buttery flavor and succulent texture lends itself to being cooked in a range of methods and styles, including baking, grilling, steaming and smoking. There’s lots of excellent Barramundi recipes out there and cards can be sourced from the Master Fish Merchants’ Association of Australia which is where we got these beauties.
