Coconut-Crusted Barramundi

Barramundi is a mild white fish that’s both high in Omega 3 fatty acids (950mg per 6-ounce serving) and available as a sustainably farmed frozen option. I think it’s a fabulous fish for people who don’t like “fishy-fish.” You could also substitute cod, halibut, or mahi mahi for this recipe.

Prep Time

        Prep and Cook time: 5 minutes
        Yield: Serves 2


        salt to taste
        1 tbsp coconut oil
        2 barramundi fillets
        1/2 cup coconut milk
        1 cup unsweetened desiccated coconut


  1. Heat a large nonstick skillet and melt coconut oil. Pat dry barramundi fillets and generously salt on both sides.
  2. Dip each fillet in coconut milk and then in a plate with the unsweetened coconut. Immediately pan-fry for 2-3 minutes per side until fish is fully cooked and lightly golden.
