For the Hoisin Glazed Barramundi

Step 1
Heat oven to 400 degrees F.
Step 2
Whisk hoisin sauce, lime juice, salt, and pepper together in a small bowl.
Step 3
Lay barramundi filets on a baking sheet.
Step 4
Pour 2/3 of the hoisin sauce over the barramundi fillets and use a spoon or pastry brush to spread it across the fish so the barramundi is evenly coated. Reserve remaining hoisin sauce for sandwich assembly.
Step 5
Bake barramundi at 400 degrees F for 12-15 minutes until cooked through. Cooked barramundi will be bright white and will flake easily with a fork or spatula.

For the Spicy Mayo

Step 6
Stir hot sauce and mayonnaise together in a small bowl. Set aside.

To Assemble the Fish Sandwiches

Step 7
Prep the rest of the ingredients while the barramundi cooks.
Step 8
When the barramundi is about two minutes from being done, pop the halved sandwich rolls into the oven to let them toast up a bit. I place them right on my oven rack, but you could use a baking sheet if you like.
Step 9
Remove rolls and cooked barramundi from oven.
Step 10
Break up the barramundi a bit with your spatula so you have several smaller pieces. Divide the barramundi between your toasted sandwich rolls.
Step 11
Drizzle a bit of the leftover hoisin sauce over the barramundi. Top with a generous helping of shredded carrots, sliced radishes, cilantro, and green onions. Don’t be afraid to smush all the toppings down a bit so it fits more easily into the sandwich roll!
Step 12
Finish each sandwich with a squeeze of a lime wedge and a drizzle of spicy mayonnaise. Serve immediately.
