Breadcrumb Topped Barramundi

Adding some seasoned bread crumbs to the fish gives it a nice flavor and texture.


  • 2 small pieces barramundi or other white fish
  • 1/4 cup bread crumbs
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1 Tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 Tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 small garlic clove, minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • lemon wedges for serving


  • Preheat the oven to 425 F.
  • Mix the bread crumbs, oil, parsley, lemon juice, garlic, salt and mustard together in a small bowl.
  • Cover a baking sheet with foil, spray or rub a bit of oil on it so the fish won't stick, then lay the fish down on it. Cover the fish with bread crumbs.
  • Bake 8-10 minutes, depending on how thick the fish is. It should flake easily with a fork.
  • If you'd like, turn your broiler on when the fish is done and let the bread crumbs gets a little crispy--just a minute or two.
  • Serve with lemon wedges.
