Step 1
Follow the instructions on the back of the Barramundi bag to defrost your fish filets.
Step 2
While the fish is thawing, mix together the parsley, lemon juice, oil, dijon mustard, salt, pepper, and oregano in a bowl.
Step 3
Arrange your thawed fish filets in a dish and pour the marinade on top of the fish. Let them sit for 5-7 minutes. Then, flip them over to allow the marinade to coat both sides of the fish. Let them sit for another 5-7 minutes.
Step 4
Meanwhile, heat a skillet over medium-high heat on the stove. Add 1-2 Tbsp oil to coat the bottom of the pan.
Step 5
Add your Barramundi fish filets to the hot skillet and them cook for 5 minutes. (You may want to place a lid on the pan or a splatter guard)
Step 6
After 5 minutes, flip the fish over and cook for an additional 3 minutes.
Step 7
Serve with your favorite side dish and enjoy!
