How to


  1. Place Barramundi fillets skin side up on a plate. Pat dry with a paper towel then place in the fridge, uncovered, for 30 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, wash and slice Asian greens and spring onions into even pieces. Finely slice peeled ginger and garlic.
  3. Heat 2 tbsp vegetable oil in a heavy based frying pan until hot. Remove fillets from fridge and season skin with salt before placing skin side down in the pan.

Use tongs to arrange stir-fried vegetables in a pile in the centre of each plate, then gently place the Barramundi on top, skin side up. Garnish with julienne carrot if desired.
