Roasted Barramundi with Blueberry Salsa
Thanks so much to Australis Barramundi for sponsoring this post and helping me to create this Roasted Barramundi with Blueberry Salsa meal!
As easy as it is impressive, Roasted Barramundi with Blueberry Salsa makes for a light and incredibly flavorful summer dinner!
Today’s recipe features one of the best combinations of savory with sweet that I’ve enjoyed lately. Plus, all of the ingredients are fresh, vibrant and colorful, making this such a pretty fish dish to serve. Not to mention, one of the tastiest.
My selection of fish was Australis Barramundi — The Sustainable Seabass® is sweet, mild and buttery. Australis Barramundi offers a variety of products from fresh to frozen and you can find products at the seafood counter or frozen food aisle of your local grocery store. Use this store locator for more information.
For this recipe, I used Lemon Herb Butter Fillets that I found while shopping the frozen food aisle of my local Costco. Australis Barramundi are humanely harvested, hand-cut, and flash frozen the same day to lock in peak quality and freshness.
Before partnering with Australis Barramundi, I had never tried this type of white flakey fish, but now I can’t get enough of it. Brad feels the same way- I caught him, yesterday, popping a few fillets in the oven for a quick and tasty pre-workout meal. It cooks up perfectly, straight from it’s frozen state. Australis Barramundi is great choice for health conscious people looking to increase their intake of lean protein. It’s rich in omega-3’s, with just half the calories of salmon and I love that it’s so quick and easy to cook — frozen fish actually has many benefits over fresh!
Did you know that replacing 1 meal of beef/pork/chicken every week with barramundi positively impacts your health and the planet? Australis Barramundi is raised with no hormones, additives, or colorants. It’s also guaranteed pure, with no traceable levels of mercury, PCBs, or other contaminants.
Barramundi’s clean, buttery flavor and meaty texture appeals to just about everyone—even non-fish lovers call it a favorite! With a similar taste to grouper and halibut, it’s a sustainable substitute for some of the most popular overfished white fish.
The blueberry corn salsa paired so well with this light, flaky fish. It’s a good thing too- I’ve been buying blueberries like they’re going out of style, so any recipe I can dream up that includes blueberries is a winner, as far as I’m concerned. A blueberry salsa may sound a little strange, but trust me, I was eating the salsa from this recipe with a spoon straight out of the bowl. SO GOOD.
This recipe for Roasted Barramundi with Blueberry Salsa is quick and easy to make, full of healthy and antioxidant- rich ingredients, naturally-gluten free, and it’s perfectly sweet and savory and delicious! I can’t wait for you guys to give it a try and be sure to let me know what you think. I’d love for you to tag @kimscravings on Instagram with a photo of your own creation!
