These lettuce wraps are light and summery with a major flavor punch from an earthy miso tahini sauce. Lettuce wraps are the perfect easy meal on warm days! Load your wraps with pan-seared barramundi, fresh veggies, and homemade miso sauce for a meal that’s on the table in 30 minutes or less. Recipe and photos by Jessie Johnson of Life As A Strawberry.


Step 1
In a small bowl, whisk together all miso tahini sauce ingredients. Set aside.
Step 2
Use paper towels to pat each barramundi fillet very dry. Season both sides of the fish with salt and pepper. If you like, you can cut the barramundi into smaller, 2-inch portions to speed the cooking time.
Step 3
Heat a large nonstick or cast iron skillet over medium-high heat. Add canola oil and heat until the oil shimmers.
Step 4
When skillet is hot, gently lay barramundi pieces into the pan. Cook for 2-3 minutes per side until the flesh is bright white and opaque. Exact cook time will vary depending on the size and thickness of the fish.
Step 5
Remove the skillet from the heat and pour in half of your miso tahini sauce. Stir the sauce into the barramundi. The fish should easily flake apart, making it easier to spoon into your lettuce wraps.
Step 6
Assemble the lettuce wraps. Lay your large lettuce leaves flat and divide the cooked barramundi evenly between them. Top with shredded carrots, radish slices, cilantro, and green onion. Drizzle with a spoonful of the remaining miso tahini sauce and serve immediately.
