  1. Step 1Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Thaw the barramundi and rinse with cold water. Use paper towel to pat each fillet very dry.
  2. Step 2Combine paprika, onion powder, thyme, cayenne pepper, garlic powder and half a teaspoon of salt and black pepper in a small bowl. Prepare a sheet pan for baking by brushing it with a drizzle of olive oil, then brush thawed barramundi fillets with olive oil. Sprinkle spice mixture over the fillets. Rub the spice in to both sides of the fish. Bake fish until brown and flaky, about 8-10 minutes.
  3. Step 3While fish fillets are baking, place sour cream, juice of one lime, cilantro and minced garlic into a blender and mix well. Add salt and pepper to taste, as desired.
  4. Step 4Once fish fillets are finished baking, plate the meal by topping each tostada with shredded cabbage/cole slaw mix. Pull apart the blackened fish fillets and place on top of the shredded cabbage. Add a slice of avocado and a one-two tablespoons of the cilantro lime crema to each tostada. Top with extra cilantro, sliced cherry tomatoes (if desired) and another squeeze of lime, to taste.
  5. NotesCan substitute tortillas for tostadas for a delicious fish taco!
