Coriander and Lemon Crusted Barramundi With Cucumber Mint Salsa

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by An_Net

I have used the Indian technique of marinating in yoghurt for the fish and topped the whole it off with a refreshing salsa to contrast the strong flavours of the fish. 4hrs marinating time is required for the fish.

This had such an interesting taste! We loved the combination of the refreshing salsa with the smooth and creamy fish. They complimented one another very well. Yum! Made for PAC Fall 2007. Thanks darang61!
