Barramundi has a mild buttery flavor and a dense meaty texture (think snapper crossed with halibut). It’s not a ‘fishy fish’ so folks that prefer mild tasting seafood love it. It’s a great alternative to everyday fish like cod, salmon and tilapia. Don’t let the exotic name fool you – barramundi is a snap to cook. Bake it with some bread crumbs, sauté with a little lemon butter, or marinate it with some olive oil, herbs and fresh squeezed lemon and toss it on the grill. Barramundi has omega-3 levels that rival to wild Coho Salmon, which is unheard of for a mild white fish! With just 137 calories and only 2.5 grams of 'good fat' per portion, it has half the calories of salmon and is ideal for anyone looking to make healthy food choices.
