Foil baked whole barramundi


  • 1 Infinity Blue Barramundi (1lb)
  • 2 large cloves of garlic, chopped
  • 1in diameter piece of ginger, thinly sliced
  • 5 spring onions, thinly sliced
  • 2 tsp soy sauce
  • 2 tsp sesame oil
  • 2 oz bean sprouts
  • Coriander, chopped
  • Cracked black pepper


Pre-heat oven at 350°F. Lay out a double layer of foil large enough to wrap around the fish like a parcel. Place the Barramundi on the foil.  Pat the fish dry using paper towel.  Make three diagonal cuts across the fish with a sharp knife. Sprinkle the garlic, ginger and onions over the fish. Rub lightly over the fish and include some of the seasoning mixture into the diagonal cuts. In a small bowl combine the soy sauce, sesame oil and a twist of black pepper.  Pour over the fish. Wrap the foil around the fish sealing all sides. Bake in oven at 350°F for 30-40min. Can also be cooked on top of a barbecue.

Open the foil carefully and fold back the sides so you can see the whole fish. Sprinkle bean sprouts or chopped coriander over the top.  Serve with lemon wedge.
