Cooking Barramundi | Recipes for Barramundi or Sea Bass

Barramundi flesh is white and moist with a medium to firm texture and fairly large flakes. The flavour is mild, subtle and highly prized. Barramundi are very versatile when it comes to cooking.

Cooking Barramundi :

Barramundi flesh is white and moist with a medium to firm texture and fairly large flakes. The flavour is mild, subtle and highly prized. Barramundi are very versatile when it comes to cooking. Barramundi is well suited to all methods of cookery because of its moist texture and mild flavour. It is delicious when pan-fried, steamed, chargrilled or barbecued. Best served with leafy green vegetables such as baby bok choy and rocket.  

Buying Barramundi
Wild-caught Barramundis are usually sold in fillets or cutlets. In fillets and cutlets, look for lustrous, firm, moist white-pinkish flesh without any brown markings or oozing water and with a pleasant fresh smell. Farmed baby Barramundis are mostly sold whole, look for firm flesh, which springs back when touched and a pleasant fresh smell.

To Store
Make sure whole fish is scaled, gutted and cleaned thoroughly. Wrap whole fish, fillets and cutlets in plastic wrap or place in an airtight container. Refrigerate for 2-3 days or freeze whole fish for up to 6 months, and fillets or cutlets for up to 3 months, below -18ēC.

To Cook
Yield is 45-50%. Barramundi flesh has large flakes, mild flavour, low-medium oiliness depending on the season, moist flesh and medium to firm texture depending on size. Wild-caught Barramundi has only a few large bones, which can easily be removed. Cut large fillets into serving size portions. The centre bone of cutlets can be removed and a filling placed in the cavity. Baby Barramundis are best served whole (scaled, gutted and cleaned) as they are an ideal plate-sized fish. Barramundi skin is fine and can be left on during cooking.
