"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."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

4 (4 ounce) fillets
barramundi (Asian sea bass)
olive oil, or as needed
dried bread crumbs
seafood seasoning (such as Old Bay®)
chopped fresh basil, or to taste
I used this recipe on halibut because I couldn't get the sea bass it calls for. I think I made a mistake by using my own breadcrumbs because they didn't really get very crispy, so I'd think that some like the Progresso would work well. I made my own version of Old Bay seasoning which turned out very similar to the brand name herbs. The sauce was good, but I did want more flavor on it----some fresh garlic would have been very nice in it. This is a good recipe, and I'll try it again. Thanks, Joanne H!
I used Tilapia for this recipe and both my husband and I thought the lemon basil sauce made this an over the top recipe. Next time I will try a different type of fish.
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 enjoyed this. I used buttery round crackers which I prefer over bread crumbs for fish dishes. I reserved some of the crumbs so that when I turned the fillets over after 10 minutes, I had more to add to the top. One stick of butter seemed like a lot for a sauce just to drizzle, so I halved the sauce and it worked fine, and I also added a little garlic powder to it. Nice recipe Joanne H!
Delicious, light recipe. Did not make the lemon butter, used less bread crumbs but the same amount of spices.
I made this for dinner last night but used Tilapia...so so delicious! I served it with cauliflower ...the sauce was delicious over the cauliflower as well...this is my new favorite fish recipe!!
This is a keeper. Made with baby potatoes and artichokes. Everyone liked it.
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 it again.
