Bright colors and flavors burst forth in each bite of delicious barramundi rice paper rolls. Is there anything more energizing than lightly seasoned raw vegetables with sushi-grade seafood wrapped in a pillowy-soft rice paper roll? You’re soon to enjoy our favorite recipe for Barramundi Rice Paper Rolls with Coconut Peanut Curry Sauce — full of citrus-marinated cubes of barramundi and thinly sliced veggies, avocado, and mango. Recipe, food styling, and photography by Lindsey Johnson of Café Johnsonia.


Step 1
Place the cubed barramundi in a shallow baking dish. Pour the lime and/or lemon juice over the fish. Add the ginger and garlic. Stir well. Cover dish and refrigerate for 20-30 minutes, or until fish turns opaque. Drain off the citrus marinade and bring to the prep area.
Step 2
Meanwhile, prep the vegetables if they haven’t already been sliced. Arrange everything nearby because these rice rolls need to be assembled quickly.
Step 3
Working one at a time, dip a rice wrapper in warm water for about 5-10 seconds and place on a clean cutting board or plate. The wrapper won’t be completely soft when you remove it from the water. It will take a few more seconds.
Step 4
Add a handful of the cubed, marinated barramundi (a little more than one ounce) in a line in the center of the rice paper. Layer the vegetables, avocado, and mango on top of the fish. Top with a few each of the mint, basil, and cilantro leaves.
Step 5
Pull the side of the rice wrapper closest to you up over the filling, pulling it in to make it tighter. (This is the same way a burrito is rolled up.) Fold the sides in, again like a burrito, and roll the entire roll over. The rice wrapper will stick to itself. Repeat the entire process, one at a time, with the other wrappers to form 11-12 more rolls.
Step 6
Serve immediately with the coconut peanut curry sauce, or refrigerate for up to 1 day wrapped well with plastic wrap.
Step 7
For coconut peanut curry sauce: Whisk all of the ingredients together until smooth and creamy, or place everything in a small food processor or blender. Transfer to a bowl, cover, and refrigerate until ready to use. Makes about 1 cup.
