  • Blanch vegetables in boiling salted water until just cooked but still “al dente”.
  • Score the fish’s skin and season it with salt and pepper, then place some basil leaves on the fish.
  • Heat a non-stick pan, add olive oil and cook the barramundi until it is 70% done.
  • Remove the fish from the pan and add chopped garlic, cherry tomatoes, butter, and white wine.
  • Add the barramundi and basil and season, and turn off the heat to let the fish slowly cook itself without any sauce on the skin.
  • Caramelise the vegetables in a pan with olive oil and thyme, season with salt and pepper.
