Festive, fun, and welcome at any gathering… We’re talking about the fish sliders…but this goes double for anyone who walks in the door with a tray of these unique appetizers! Imagine handing these beauties to your host for maximum impact—especially when guests realize what you already know: barramundi (aka The Better Fish) isn’t “fishy” in the least! In fact, it’s naturally buttery, meaty yet flaky in texture, with a subtle flavor profile that’s ready to take on seasoning and spices of almost any sort you desire. Barramundi Sliders with Honey Lemon Aioli are just the dish for a housewarming or backyard BBQ—ready in under 30 minutes, plus it’s practically guaranteed that no one else will be serving them! Recipe, food styling and photography by Lauren Grier of Climbing Grier Mountain, who shared, “What I love about barramundi is that it’s light, high in protein, low in calories, and drama free.” We couldn’t agree more!
