We prepare a Malaysian sambal paste of onions, garlic, ginger, lemongrass, turmeric and fish sauce, with a hint of chilli and fry it until it is fragrant.  We then add kaffir lime leaves and coconut milk and reduce to a thick marinade.

The Humpty Doo barramundi fillets are marinated in the paste - ready for you to pan fry and then top with our prepared deliciously chewy, toasty coconut and fried shallot crust before baking in the oven.

Suitable for freezing. Defrost fully before cooking. Remove the fish from the bag and pat it dry. Sear in a hot, lightly oiled, oven-proof frying pan for 2 minutes each side. Top the fish with the coconut crust and place on a baking tray into a preheated 180C oven for 5-7 minutes until fish is cooked through.
