Lose the stove. Keep the heat. Ready in just twenty, Apricot Serrano Barramundi Crudo is flame-free but flavor-full! Top notes of spicy serrano pepper marry sweet apricot and buttery barramundi cured with citrus. Recipe, food styling, and photography for this naturally-cured fish comes courtesy of Our Name is Farm.


Step 1
Add all prepped ingredients of the curing liquid to a small bowl and mix, then add the barramundi fillet slices, and set aside for 5 minutes. Strain the fish, and reserve curing liquid.
Step 2
Assemble the barramundi slices on a large, flat plate, in any decorative fashion you please. Then, top with crudo trimmings: red onion, apricot, serrano pepper and radish.
Step 3
In a separate small bowl or cup, mix the finishing oil and smoked pimenton or paprika until a deep red oil (with no clumps) comes together. Drizzle it over the cured barramundi and trimmings, and finish with microgreens. Serve immediately.
