Steamed Barramundi Belly Roll

Steamed fish is best eaten fresh, and using Kuhlbarra’s barramundi belly we created a dish that is not only healthy yet incredibly tasty all within 20 minutes. Pairing the fish with kai lan and shiitake mushrooms, we added a fish stock and abalone sauce that gives the dish its depth and flavour. The dish not only looks classy and it’s so easy everyone can make it at home.

Cook a few servings and serve them to your guests, and enjoy!

That said, we are partnering with Kuhlbarra to giveaway 3 sets of Kuhlbarra Kuhl Reunion worth $88 and another $8 worth of barramundi bones each to 3 lucky winners! Click here to participate :-
