    Sheet Pan Roasted Barramundi with Corn, Tomatoes, and Lime Butter

    This simple sheet pan barramundi bake is ready in 30 minutes and features your favorite summer produce! Dress up some roasted barramundi with an easy homemade compound butter and plenty of fresh herbs. Recipe and photos by Jessie Johnson of Life As A Strawberry.

    Prep Time

        •    Prep time: 15 minutes
        •    Cook time: 15 minutes
        •    Yield: Serves 4


    Ingredients

    For the barramundi:

        •    5 cloves garlic, peeled
        •    Salt and pepper to taste
        •    1/4 cup chopped cilantro
        •    2 tbsps extra virgin olive oil
        •    14 oz cherry tomatoes on the vine
        •    3 ears of corn, sliced into 1-inch discs
        •    2 (6-oz) Australis Barramundi fillets, frozen
        •    Toasted baguette or French bread slices, for serving (optional)


    For the lime butter:

        •    Zest of 1 lime
        •    1 tbsp lime juice
        •    1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, at room temperature


    Method

    1. Make the lime butter. Combine all ingredients for the lime butter in a small bowl and stir to combine. It helps to use the back of a spoon or spatula to knead the butter. Spoon butter onto a sheet of waxed paper and use the paper to roll it into a log shape. Refrigerate until you’re ready to use it.

    2. Heat oven to 400 degrees F.

    3. Lay frozen barramundi fillets, corn, tomatoes, and garlic in a single layer on a large sheet pan. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper to taste.

    4. Bake at 400 degrees F for 15 minutes or until barramundi has turned bright white and is no longer opaque.

    5. Top barramundi with chopped cilantro and a slice of lime butter. Serve immediately with toast (optional) for the garlic and tomatoes.

    6. Make the lime butter in advance and store in the fridge for up to a week. Add a splash of lime juice to the barramundi and vegetables before baking if you like. Use basil or parsley in place of cilantro if you like.

        •    Yield: Serves 4


    Ingredients

    For the fish cakes:

        •    50g butter
        •    2 egg yolks
        •    salt and pepper
        •    50ml vegetable oil
        •    1 lemon, quartered
        •    800g desiree potatoes
        •    2 spring onions, sliced
        •    1 tbsp capers, chopped
        •    80g cornflour (gluten-free)
        •    1 tbsp wholegrain mustard
        •    1 tbsp cornichons, chopped
        •    350g fish fillets, cut into large pieces
        •    1 handful mixed herbs (parsley, dill, basil), chopped


    For the kohlrabi and green chilli slaw:

        •    1 kohlrabi
        •    salt and pepper
        •    4 tbsps mayonnaise
        •    pinch smoked paprika
        •    handful flat-leaf parsley
        •    1 red onion, thinly sliced
        •    1 lime, finely grated zest and juice
        •    1 green chilli, seeds removed, sliced into strips


    Method

    For the fish cakes:

    1. Roast the potatoes in their skins for 50 minutes at 180C.

    2. Remove from the oven, cut in half and scoop the potato from the skins into a large bowl.

    3. Steam the fish until just cooked and add to the potato. Mix with a large spoon, breaking up the potato and fish. Add the capers, cornichons, mustard, egg yolks, herbs, spring onions, salt and pepper.

    4. Thinly slice the potato skins and add them too. Leave the mixture to cool for five minutes, then shape into small cakes.  Cool in the fridge for 30 minutes.

    5. Put cornflour on a plate, roll each fish cake in it then shallow fry in the vegetable oil and butter for three to four minutes on each side until golden brown.


    For the kohlrabi and green chilli slaw:

    1. Top and tail the kohlrabi and cut into matchsticks with a sharp knife or Japanese mandolin.

    2. Then simply throw all the ingredients into a large bowl, toss well and season to taste.


    To serve:
    Salt the slaw just before serving, or it will draw moisture from the vegetables and make the slaw too wet. Serve the fish cakes with a little more salt and a lemon quarter.

    TIP: For this recipe I bake the potatoes, scoop out the soft interior and thinly slice the crispy skins so nothing goes to waste. For a non gluten-free version you can also use up excess bread with these fish cakes. Dry it out in the oven on a low heat, then blend it to make breadcrumbs. Roll the cakes in flour, then a little egg wash, then in the bread crumbs.
