Recipe #26: Fried crispy skin barramundi with sautéed mushroom, garlic & onion on buttered pasta

The name of this recipe says it all: my favourite fish (together with salmon) with my favourite pasta. Quite an UNweird meal, unless of course stink beans is added (which is what I tried with salmon yesterday), and very easy to prepare. Sublimely delicious!

  • Barramundi fillet with skin
  • Butter
  • Mushroom
  • Garlic
  • White onion
  • Green chili
  • Black pepper
  • Sea-salt
  • Parsley

Rub sea-salt on skin of barramundi and then dry fillet with a paper towel.
Boil pasta in a saucepan.
In a fry-pan, sauté sliced mushroom, chili, garlic & onion in butter until golden brown, then remove and place aside.
Place barramundi fillet in simmering butter with skin side facing down, turn heat up then fry. Just before butter reaches browning point, turn heat down.
Flip over barramundi fillet and fry until cooked. Turn over again and fry skin until golden crisp. Remove and allow excess butter to drain.
Toss in boiled pasta, sautéed mushroom, chili, garlic & onions in fry-pan and quickly mix with remaining butter, adding black pepper and sea-salt to taste. Place on serving dish and top with barramundi.
Garnish with parsley.

Complement with a fine White Burgundy such as a Premier Cru Chablis.
