  1. Step 1 Rub barramundi gently with the peppercorn. Grill, sear or pan roast the barramundi for 8 minutes (or until it flakes).
  2. Step 2 While the fish is cooking mix the ingredients for the sauce.
  3. Step 3 In a pot on the stove, heat the oil until it is about 350 degrees F.
  4. Step 4 Dredge the onions in flour, then into the tempura mix. Fry in the oil until golden and crispy. Set aside on a paper-towel lined plate and season with salt and fresh cracked pepper.
  5. Step 5 Toast the bread gently.
  6. Step 6 Smother the base of the bread with the sauce. Top with lettuce, tomato, fish, crispy onion rings, and the rest of the sauce. Top with bread and serve.
