Characteristics

CharacteristicsBarramundi has pinkish-white flesh and cooks up firm and flaky.  With a clean, mild and sweet flavor and delicious skin that crisps up nicely when cooked, barramundi will quickly become the star of your menu.

For Your Menu

MenuTake advantage of barramundi’s Australian pedigree and pair this tasty fish with whatever Australian whites you have on your menu!  Or, suggest a cold Foster’s 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 – its very mild, wonderfully flaky and impeccably fresh since it’s harvested to order.  “You’ll love it – it’s so mild and has a firm, yet flaky texture.”


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. Once they try it, they’ll love it!
