    Seared Barramundi & Sushi Rice

    Prep Time

        •    Prep time: 5 minutes
        •    Cook time: 25 minutes
        •    Yield: Serves 2

    Ingredients

        •    1 lime
        •    1 avocado
        •    2 scallions
        •    1 tbsp mirin
        •    ½ lb broccoli
        •    2 cloves garlic
        •    ½ cup sushi rice
        •    1 tbsp sesame oil
        •    1 tbsp sambal oelek
        •    1/4 cup tempura mix
        •    2 tbsps ponzu sauce
        •    2 skin-on barramundi fillets

    Method

    1. Prepare the ingredients: Preheat the oven to 475°F. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Peel and roughly chop the garlic. Cut off and discard the root ends of the scallions; thinly slice, separating the white bottoms and green tops. Cut off and discard the bottom ½ inch of the broccoli stem. Cut the broccoli into small pieces. Quarter the lime.

    2. Cook the rice: In a small pot, combine the rice, garlic, white bottoms of the scallions, a big pinch of salt, and 1 cup of water; heat to boiling on high. Once boiling, cover and reduce the heat to low. Cook 15 to 17 minutes, or until the water has been absorbed and the rice is tender. Turn off the heat and fluff the cooked rice with a fork. Stir in the mirin; season with salt and pepper to taste.

    3. Roast the broccoli: While the rice cooks, place the broccoli on a sheet pan. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Toss to coat. Arrange in a single layer. Roast 13 to 15 minutes, or until browned and tender when pierced with a fork. Remove from the oven. Top with half the sesame oil; carefully stir to coat. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Set aside in a warm place.

    4. Make the avocado tempura: While the broccoli roasts, pit and peel the avocado; cut lengthwise into ½-inch-thick pieces. To make the batter, in a large bowl, whisk together the tempura mix and 1/4 cup of cold water until smooth; season with salt and pepper. In a medium pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat a thin layer of oil on medium-high until hot. Once the oil is hot enough that a drop of batter sizzles immediately when added to the pan, thoroughly coat the avocado in the batter (letting any excess drip off); carefully add to the pan. Cook 2 to 4 minutes per side, or until lightly browned and crispy. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate; immediately season with salt. Drain off and discard any excess oil from the pan. Wipe out the pan.

    5. Cook the barramundi: Pat the barramundi fillets dry with paper towels; season with salt and pepper on both sides. In the same pan, heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the seasoned fillets, skin side down, and cook 3 to 5 minutes on the first side, or until the skin is lightly browned and crispy. Flip and cook 2 to 3 minutes, or until lightly browned and cooked through. Turn off the heat.

    6. Make the sauce & plate your dish: While the barramundi cooks, in a bowl, whisk together the ponzu sauce, remaining sesame oil, the juice of 2 lime wedges, and as much of the sambal oelek as you'd like, depending on how spicy you’d like the dish to be. Divide the cooked rice, roasted broccoli, avocado tempura, and cooked barramundi fillets between 2 dishes. Garnish with the green tops of the scallions. Serve with the sauce and remaining lime wedges on the side. Enjoy!

      Barramundi & Couscous

      Honeynut squash, a sweet and petite variety of butternut, gets the star treatment in this recipe. (Your squash may have beautiful green stripes.) I use it to make an agrodolce—a sweet-and-sour Italian condiment—to top our barramundi. My agrodolce combines honey and vinegar with raisins and red pepper flakes for pops of fruity sweetness and a hint of heat. Served over pearl couscous and garlic-sautéed kale, it’s the perfect way to welcome fall.

      Prep Time

          •    Prep and cook time: 50 minutes
          •    Yield: Serves 4

      Ingredients

          •    1 shallot
          •    1 bunch kale
          •    1 bunch mint
          •    1 tbsp honey
          •    2 cloves garlic
          •    1 honeynut squash
          •    2 tbsps golden raisins
          •    1 1/4 cups pearl couscous
          •    2 tbsps white wine vinegar
          •    4 skin-on barramundi fillets
          •    1/4 tsp crushed red pepper flakes

      Method

      1. Prepare the ingredients: Remove the honey from the refrigerator to bring to room temperature. Heat a medium pot of salted water to boiling on high. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Peel and finely chop the shallot. Pick the mint leaves off the stems; discard the stems. Cut off and discard the ends of the squash. Carefully peel the squash; halve lengthwise. Using a spoon, scoop out and discard the pulp and seeds. Small dice the squash. Peel and finely chop the garlic. Remove and discard the kale stems; roughly chop the leaves.

      2. Cook the couscous: Add the couscous to the pot of boiling water. Cook, uncovered, 8 to 10 minutes, or until tender. Reserving 1/2 cup of the couscous cooking water, drain thoroughly and return to the pot. Set aside in a warm place.

      3. Make the glaze: While the couscous cooks, in a bowl, combine the honey (kneading the packet before opening), vinegar, shallot, raisins, half the mint (tearing the leaves just before adding), 2 tablespoons of water, and as much of the red pepper flakes as you'd like, depending on how spicy you’d like the dish to be. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

      4. Make the squash agrodolce: While the couscous continues to cook, in a large pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the squash; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 6 to 8 minutes, or until lightly browned and slightly softened. Add the glaze. Cook, stirring occasionally, 1 to 3 minutes, or until thickened and the squash is coated. Turn off the heat; season with salt and pepper to taste. Transfer to a bowl and set aside in a warm place. Rinse and wipe out the pan.

      5. Cook the kale & finish the couscous: In the same pan, heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the garlic; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring constantly, 30 seconds to 1 minute, or until fragrant. Add the kale; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 2 to 3 minutes, or until slightly wilted. Add the reserved couscous cooking water and cook, stirring occasionally, 3 to 4 minutes, or until the kale has wilted and the water has cooked off. Transfer to the pot of cooking couscous. Drizzle with olive oil; stir to combine. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Rinse and wipe out the pan used to cook the kale.

      6. Cook the barramundi & serve your dish: Pat the barramundi fillets dry with paper towels. Season with salt and pepper on both sides. In the same pan, heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the seasoned fillets, skin side down. Cook 5 to 7 minutes on the first side, or until lightly browned and the skin is crispy. Flip and cook 1 to 2 minutes, or until lightly browned and cooked through. Transfer the finished couscous to a serving dish. Top with the cooked barramundi fillets and squash agrodolce. Garnish with the remaining mint (tearing the leaves just before adding). Enjoy!

        Baked Barramundi with Harissa Sheet Pan Dinner

        Sheet pan dinners are a weeknight savior—they combine baking and broiling so that the dish has as many textures as it does flavor, with minimal clean-up! This Baked Barramundi with Harissa, Potatoes and Spring Onions recipe yields perfectly-browned barramundi and tender vegetables with tangy spiciness and complexity.

        Prep Time

            •    Prep time: 15 minutes
            •    Cook time: 50 minutes
            •    Yield: Serves 4

        Ingredients

            •    lemon wedges
            •    6 tbsps olive oil
            •    2 tbsps harissa paste
            •    4 x 6 oz skin on barramundi fillets
            •    kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
            •    1 pound new potatoes, scrubbed, thinly sliced
            •    6 spring onions, halved lengthwise, or 8 whole scallions

        Method

        1. Place an oven rack in the upper third of the oven. Preheat to 425 degrees F.

        2. Combine oil and harissa in a small bowl; adjust flavor with more harissa if needed.

        3. Toss onions and potatoes with half of the harissa mixture in a large baking dish, season with salt and pepper, then add 1/4 cup water. Roast, tossing once, until potatoes are fork-tender, 20-25 minutes.

        4. Meanwhile, score skin side of fillets about 1/4′ deep; season with salt and pepper. Rub remaining harissa mixture all over fish, getting into the score marks.

        5. Remove onions and potatoes from oven and heat broiler. Place fish skin side up on top of vegetables and broil until onions and potatoes are tender and fish is cooked through and starting to brown on top, 8-10 minutes.
