Ho ho ho-chiak! This Christmas special has something for everyone — we’ve whipped up a Surf and Turf with homemade Basil Pistachio Butter.

We got the perfect trio from Kühlbarra! Plus, they have a Christmas bundle where you can get: Barramundi Portions, Grain Fed Angus Beef Ribeye and Barramundi Chowder for only $90 (u.p. $119). 

Perfect for any cooking style, their Barramundi Portions come deboned and descaled, making them a breeze to prepare. They’re so flaky and fresh that all we did was sear it and baste with our homemade Basil and Pistachio Butter. 

A Christmas feast, indeed, with Kühlbarra’s newly-launched tender Grain Fed Angus Beef Ribeye and generously chunky Barramundi chowder! 

Hold on, what’s Christmas without gifts ✨Use “KUHLMEATMEN15” to get 15% off* when you spend $120 or more*. Valid from 12 Dec 2023 – 11 Jan 2023.
