For Your Menu

MenuPair this tasty fish with whatever white wine you have on your menu!  Or, suggest a cold lager – Barramundi goes great with beer.

For Your Waitstaff

Wait StaffBarramundi is a great fish to suggest to people who claim they don’t like seafood – it’s very mild, wonderfully flaky and impeccably fresh since it’s harvested to order.


For Your Retail Display

Retail Encourage people to try Barramundi if they haven’t yet – it cooks up quickly, like Snapper or Rockfish and they can sauté it, bake it, or broil it. Once they try it, they’ll love it!
