What Is Barramundi And How Should You Cook It?
Fish is one of the most widely consumed types of seafood, yet there are many varieties that most diners aren't familiar with. One underrated fish is barramundi, a popular sport fish native to subtropical and tropical freshwater environments, and these large specimens make for a healthy, sustainable, and eco-friendly meal option.
Barramundi are large fish that can weigh as much as 132 pounds, with grayish-green scales and a silvery white underbelly. Its flesh is similar in texture and flavor to other mild-tasting, moist, easy-to-cook white fish like cod, tilapia, halibut, but with a buttery sweetness and lots of protein, healthy fat, and other nutritional benefits.
Barramundi has a mild flavor and a juicy and flaky texture that work well when roasted, baked, or pan-seared, and can be used in place of cod or tilapia. Since it's often farmed, barramundi is not overfished and quite sustainable, and can be found at markets like Whole Foods, online fish retailers, or Asian grocery stores.
