Starting on our Christmas recipe series, we have a simple 40 minute recipe that is good for the whole family! Using Kuhlbarra’s barramundi fillet, we simply created a tasteful mix of pesto, crushed almonds, white pearl onions, tomatoes and rosemary for pairing.
Add some lemon zest and juice, bake it in parchment paper, and you’re good to serve – easy! You can also purchase their ready-divided fillet on their website here, complete with parchment paper for easy cooking.
Share this with your friends and welcome the festive season!
