A classic, sustainable weeknight meal. This easy fish pasta is made with sustainable barramundi, summer tomatoes, and white wine. A classic favorite with simple ingredients you likely have on hand, for an easy, delicious home cooked meal. Recipe, food styling & photography by Jessie Johnson.


Step 1
Cook pasta in very salty water until al dente. Drain and set aside
Step 2
While the pasta cooks, cut barramundi fillets into quarters, about 2-inch pieces.
Step 3
Heat olive oil in a large, sturdy skillet over medium-high heat until the oil shimmers. You want the oil nice and hot for your tomatoes! Add cherry tomatoes and cook, stirring only once or twice, for 3-4 minutes until skins have blistered and begun to burst.
Step 4
Add shallot, garlic, and red peper flakes to tomatoes and stir to combine. Cook 1-2 minutes, stirring occasionally, until shallot has softened and browned.
Step 5
Add salt and pepper and stir to combine.
Step 6
Add white wine to pan to deglaze. Use your spoon or spatula to scrape any browned bits off the bottom of the pan – we want all that flavor!
Step 7
Add thyme and stir to combine. Bring sauce to a low simmer.
Step 8
Cook the barramundi. Gently place your barramundi pieces into the white wine sauce. Spoon some of the sauce over each piece of fish to help them cook.
Step 9
Cook for 2-3 minutes until the fish begins to turn bright white around the edges. Use a spoon or spatula to gently flip each piece of fish over. Cook 203 more minutes, until barramundi is a bright, opaque white and easily flakes apart. If you’d prefer not to flip your fish over, cover the pan with a tight-fitting lid or continuously spoon the white wine sauce over your fish to help it cook evenly.
Step 10
When your fish has cooked, taste your sauce and add salt if necessary.
Step 11
Toss your cooked pasta with a few large spoonfuls of the white wine sauce to keep noodles from sticking together.
Step 12
Place pasta on a place or serving dish. Use a spoon or spatula to place fish and tomatoes on top of pasta, then drizzle remaining sauce over pasta. You can toss everything together instead of plating if you like – the fish just won’t hold its shape as well.
Step 13
Serve fish pasta immediately with lemon wedges and extra thyme leaves for garnish.
