"Barramundi has been available quite often in my local supermarket. This recipe would also be good with tilapia. The butter-lemon-basil sauce is also good over brown rice."

This is a keeper. Made with baby potatoes and artichokes. Everyone liked it.

This was sooo yummy! I had never had this type of fish, but bought it on a whim, and had to search for a recipe after the fact. I used panko bread crumbs and added salt to the breading mixture...

I used cod because I couldn't find the other fish and it still turned out amazing!!! Served it with brown rice and steamed broccoli and cauliflower!! Delicious!

I made this for dinner last night but used so delicious! I served it with cauliflower ...the sauce was delicious over the cauliflower as well...this is my new favorite fish recipe!!

I followed the recipe without alterations. It was easy and delicious. We usually minimally season fish, enjoying the natural flavors. This recipe doesn't overpower the fish, we will be making...
