A relative newcomer to the U.S. seafood market, barramundi is a truly sustainable fish that finding a place both at high-end restaurants and mid-scale retailers, where its versatility and eco-friendly reputation have earned it a following.

Australia’s Aborigines dubbed this species barramundi, meaning river fish with large scales; it spends most of its life in rivers, migrating to estuaries to breed and then returning to its original river system.

 

A member of the sea bass family, barramundi is native to Australia’s northern tropical waters and parts of Southeast Asia.

 

Our barramundi is farmed in the U.S.

If you have not worked with this fish yet, we highly recommend to give it a try.

Barramundi is a versatile fish and has a high enough oil content to keep the flesh moist while cooking.

The sweet, mild flavor lends itself to a wide range of sauces and spices.

 

Try grilling whole barramundi to serve with a dill-and-lemon butter sauce. The fish is also excellent pan seared with the edible skin, which crisps up nicely. Aborigines wrap barramundi in the leaves of the wild ginger plant and bake it in hot ashes for a traditional preparation.
