Foil Baked Whole Barramundi


Pre-heat oven at 180°C. Lay out a double layer of foil large enough to wrap around the fish like a parcel. Place the Barramundi on the foil.  Pat the fish dry using paper towel.  Make three diagonal cuts across the fish with a sharp knife. Sprinkle the garlic, ginger and onions over the fish. Rub lightly over the fish and include some of the seasoning mixture into the diagonal cuts. In a small bowl combine the soy sauce, sesame oil and a twist of black pepper.  Pour over the fish. Wrap the foil around the fish sealing all sides. Bake in oven at 180°C for 30-40min. Can also be cooked on top of a barbecue.

Open the foil carefully and fold back the sides so you can see the whole fish. Sprinkle bean sprouts or chopped coriander over the top.  Serve with lemon wedge.
