What is a Barramundi?

Barramundi is a round fish – similar to Wild Sea Bass. Barramundi are generally farmed in freshwater and available with Global Gap certification. As Barramundi is a farmed fish, it is generally available all year round. Alternatives to Barramundi would be Sea Bass. Barramundi have a firm but moist flesh with large flakes that tend to have a sweet taste, and gives an approximate yield of 45%. The flavour of Barramundi could be described as ‘Autumnul’ therefore it works well with produce in season at that time such as mushrooms, almonds and woody herbs such as rosemary.
