3 Barramundi Recipes to Make for Christmas


BBQ barramundi

BBQ Barramundi With Pomegranate and Green Olive Tabbouleh

A whole grilled barra is always sure to impress and this recipe from Jacqui Challinor at Nomad is no exception.

The most time-consuming aspect of the process is soaking the almonds overnight, but other than that it’s pretty straightforward. Plenty of fresh herbs and pomegranate molasses take this to a whole new level for a flavour explosion you won’t soon forget.
