Macadamia Crusted Barramundi
A great food photo can motivate you to cook something new.
If it’s healthy… easy to follow… makes your mouth water… your legs just seem to wander to the store to buy that fresh missing ingredient… Barramundi.
Have you ever roasted a Barra like this before? Zesty fresh flavours… succulent fish and the perfect amount of macadamia-crunch.
Don’t you just love Autumn comfort food?
Confession – If you love your macadamia nuts (I’m with you). I toasted a little extra and sprinkled it on top.
I’ve got a Bite – Blend some fish. Roll it with the maca mixture. Roll it in shredded coconut. It makes perfect bite-sized pieces for the kids or as an appetizer.
Barramundi love younger men – What?
Okay, all Barramundi are born male. At 3-4 years old they turn into females.
So, all female Barras only canoodle younger men.
