Macadamia Crusted Barramundi

Wouldn't you know it - the first recipe that I feel is truly bloggable this week and the camera's battery is "depleted"!!! Aarghhhhh

Well I got one photo - so that will have to do.  I wasn't going to sit and watch this get get cold while the battery recharged!!!

Macadamia Crusted Barramundi
Adapted from a recipe in Delicious Magazine - February edition

Serves 2

100g roasted unsalted macadamia nuts
zested rind of 1/2 lemon
juice of 1/2 lemon
1 clove garlic, crushed
1/2 - 1 tbs dill, chopped
1/2 - 1 tbs chives, chopped
1/2 - 1 tbs olive oil
salt and pepper to taste
2 pieces of barramundi

Preheat oven to 180 degrees.

I placed the macadamias, lemon zest, lemon (with the white pith removed), garlic, and herbs in the thermomix and processed for 4 seconds on speed 9.  Scraped down the bowl, added the olive oil and pulsed on Turbo twice.  Season with salt and pepper.

Line a baking tray with foil, lightly oil the foil.  Place the barramundi on the foil.  Top with the macadamia mixture.  Press lightly to make sure it is firmly on the fish.

Bake in the oven for 10-15 minutes, or until the fish is cooked through and the crust golden (this will depend on the thickness of your fish!!)

Serve with salad and golden roasted "smashed potatoes".

The fish was wonderful - so you will have to take my word on that and give it a go yourself - and if you do happend to make it perhaps you can send me a photo!!!!


  1. Hehe I'm with you, when food looks so tasty, it just must be eaten straight away! :)

  2. I have never seen barramundi other than in Australia but I guess this recipe could be adapted to any fish. Diane

  3. Great recipe - I know, since I've started blogging I find it horrid waiting for pics...
