  • 4 Tbsp dried Red Back Ginger leaves
  • 1 tbsp dried Red Back ginger root
  • ¼C chopped coriander (including roots)
  • 1/4C chopped mint

  • 2 tsp fish sauce

  1. Preheat oven 180C. Take baking tray and lay out foil wrap. On top of foil wrap place a rectangle of parchment paper. Grease.
  2. Place barramundi fillet on top this.
  3. Combine all ingredients in a bowl and top the fish with this mixture.
  4. Wrap parchment and foil up over barramundi fillet and join edges at top. Fold over three times to create a package and allow steaming to happen – otherwise known as ‘en papillote’.
  5. Place fish in oven and bake 30-40mins in the oven until just cooked through.
