All about Barramundi fish in Australia.

Barramundi with Mango recipe.

Score the barramundi skin.

Season well with salt and cracked pepper.

Heat a nonstick pan and add some margarine.

I use olive oil-style margarine. Sear the skin for 5 minutes on medium.

When the skin starts to go crisp.

Turn over the barramundi fillet and cook another 4-5 minutes until just cooked.

Use a thermometer to check the core temperature of the fish.

I recommend cooking at 60 C or 140 F, depending on your tastes.

It should just start to flake under pressure with your finger.

Turn the pan heat down and move the cooked fish to a warm oven.

Wipe out the pan with kitchen paper without burning yourself.

Now, make a delightful lemon cream sauce.

Add lemon zest, juice, sour cream, a dash of dry white wine and seasoning, and reduce the sauce over medium

to high heat.

Serve over one corner of the fish and garnish with lemon and dill.

For more dill flavour and, some chopped dill when serving.

This dish would go well with some new potatoes and steamed greens.

Keep the garnishes simple so as not to override the delicate fish and lemon flavours.
