A simple but delicious recipe for any time of the year. This take on a traditional favorite among French dressings is an easy way to add brightness that complements the naturally buttery flavor this unique type of fish. Roasted Barramundi with Meyer Lemon Vinaigrette is a go-to supper sure to delight your guests!


Step 1
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Remove barramundi fillets from their packaging and run under cold tap water for a few seconds to remove the thin protective coating of ice. It’s ok for the meat to still be frozen. Use paper towels to pat each fillet very dry.
Step 2
Drizzle a little bit of olive oil on a parchment-lined baking sheet and place the fillets on top. Season both sides with salt and pepper and drizzle with a bit more olive oil. Layer slices of lemon over each fillet, then scatter the rosemary and thyme sprigs on top. Drizzle with more olive oil, then bake for about 15-20 minutes, or until the flesh has turned opaque.
Step 3
While the fish is baking, make the vinaigrette. In a bowl, whisk together the Meyer lemon zest, juice, garlic, minced rosemary, minced thyme, minced parsley and 3 tablespoons olive oil until combined. Season with salt and pepper to taste, then set aside.
Step 4
When the fish is done, remove the lemon slices and herbs, then use a spatula to carefully transfer each fillet to a plate. Top with a spoonful of Meyer lemon vinaigrette. Serve immediately with extra vinaigrette and meyer lemon wedges on the side.
