Barramundi with Lemon Butter Sauce

What's for dinner tonight?  For my family, it is this barramundi recipe with a garlic lemon butter sauce. It is flaky and tasty with a delicious sauce.

Prep Time

    •    Prep and cook time: 12 minutes
    •    Yield: Serves 3-4


    •    2 tsps canola oil
    •    2 tbsps unsalted butter
    •    3 tbsps of fresh lemon juice
    •    1 - 2 cloves of garlic, minced
    •    3 barramundi fillets about 4 ounces each
    •    sea salt and cracked black pepper to taste
    •    small bunch of fresh basil (can also used 3/4 tsp of dried basil)


  1. Coat the barramundi with canola oil, season with sea salt and cracked black pepper, and place in a heated non stick skillet over medium high heat . Cook for about 4-5 minutes on each side, until the fillets are lightly browned. Move to a serving dish and keep warm while you make the sauce.
  2. In the same pan, reduce the heat and gently cook the garlic in the butter for about 2 minutes. Stir in the lemon juice and fresh basil.
  3. Spoon the sauce over the fish and serve immediately.
