Coriander and Lemon Crusted Barramundi With Cucumber Mint Salsa

"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!


I'm a busy mum to 5 plus a precious grandson. I've always had a passion of serving healthy nutritious and most importantly tasty food to my family and friends. Being an Aussie I have a insatiable appetite for bbq'ing . My cookery books fill three shelves of a large bookcase and I use the internet constantly looking for new recipes and ideas. My passion for food and cooking has been passed down to my children with 2 now being qualified chefs and another 2 working part time in the food industry whilst studying. My grandson has enjoyed the benefits of a 'foodie family' and has only ever eaten food freshly prepared by us and usually grown by a member of the family as well. <img src="" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"> <img src="" width=100%> <a href="" target="_blank"><img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a> <img src=""> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket">
