Barramundi is a lovely Australian Fish and the recipe was developed for it,however this recipe works well with halibut or redfish also.Pan fried fillets with a crispy coconut covering are topped with a mango sauce that makes this an exceptional Seafood entree.

Sorry pastry buddy I tried this and found it too much of a rich sauce for the Barra. also the batter I believe was also not what good barra needs to enhance its natural earthy flavour. thanks though.
