KISS: Lemon Pepper Barramundi


It’s been way too long since I’ve talked about Barramundi around here!  Barramundi happens to be one of our favorite fish.  It’s relatively mild in flavor, easy to cook and pairs well with so many different dishes.

When Bob and I were traveling in CO last summer, I wrote a post with information about Barramundi.  Since then, we’ve only had it a couple of times, but this week I had a strong craving for it.  Isn’t it interesting how that happens?


This is definitely a “Keep it Simple, Silly” dinner . . . perfect for a weeknight.

The fillets were frozen, so I set them in cool water to thaw as I prepared the vegetables, and threw them in the oven to roast.  After about 15 minutes, the Barramundi was ready to be placed in a pan, where I sprinkled the fillets with ground black pepper.


Last, I placed lemon slices on top and put the pan in the oven.  After 15 minutes at 400°F, dinner was ready!

Perfectly flaky, not at all dry, with a lovely black pepper and lemon seasoning.


I personally love to squish the lemon with my fork, so I can dab the Barramundi and brussels sprouts in the juice.

Have you ever had Barramundi?

    hmmm me and fish dont mix very well. For some reason, I just dont like it!! I always try it though, so to be able to say I did :) I do like shrimp though!! Especially the little baby shrimp. Shrimp tacos are one of my favorites!

    I have never tried barramundi before! It has a fun name – when I saw the “mund” suffix, I thought part of its name might mean “world.” But, according to Wikipedia, the name means “large-scaled river fish.”

    Also, I love how sophisticated, yet silly, this sounds: “I personally love to squish the lemon with my fork, so I can dab the Barramundi and brussels sprouts in the juice.”

    I love barramundi. Though I’m not very discriminatory…I’ve never met a fish I haven’t liked (as an adult). I also love squishing lemon with my fork. My favorite is to cook the lemons (seared on both sides). They get kind of caramelized and sooo tasty with fish.

    I can’t say that I’ve ever tried barramundi but I love white, flaky, and mild fish so I totally am interested in trying it! I love how a simple squirt of lemon can jazz up a seafood dish- major yum! And add a dab of cocktail sauce [with lots of horseradish]… Heavenly 😀
