Barramundi: The Sustainable Seabass™

Barramundi is Australia’s favorite fish and is known throughout many parts of the world as Asian Sea Bass.  We call it ‘The Sustainable Seabass™’ because it has the same sweet, flavor and meaty texture as other Seabass, yet its unique eco-friendly profile makes it unlike any other fish available today.

Barramundi  has been called "the perfect fish for a changing world," others describe  it as "lean & green" and even a "Top Superfood".  

Your New Favorite Fish

Barramundi has a mild buttery flavor and a dense meaty texture (think snapper crossed with halibut). It’s not a ‘fishy fish’ so folks that prefer mild tasting seafood love it. It’s a great alternative to everyday fish like cod, salmon and tilapia.

 

 

  

 

 

 

Easy To Cook

Don’t let the exotic name fool you – barramundi is a snap to cook.  Bake it with some bread crumbs, sauté with a little lemon butter, or marinate it with some olive oil, herbs and fresh squeezed lemon and toss it on the grill. Try one of our recipes and you can enjoy a healthy and delicious meal in minutes. The best part? Since barramundi is not a ‘fishy fish’ it won’t leave an odor in your kitchen (plus there are no annoying little bones to worry about).
