New Barramundi & Vegetable Stew


  • 80g butter, softened
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped continental parsley
  • 3 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 1 sourdough loaf
  • 2 tbs extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 red onion, thinly sliced
  • 2 baby fennel, thinly sliced
  • 4 ripe tomatoes, diced
  • 1 lemon, zested, juiced
  • 1 cup fish stock
  • 4 sprigs oregano, plus extra to serve
  • 600g barramundi fillets
  • 1/2 cup frozen peas, thawed


1. Preheat oven to 180°c. Combine butter, parsley, garlic, salt and pepper in a bowl. Make cuts into loaf every 2cm, ensuring not to cut all the way through. Spread garlic butter between slices. Wrap in foil, place on a baking tray and bake for 15 minutes.

2. Meanwhile, heat oil in a large, deep frying pan over medium heat. Add onion and fennel and cook, stirring, for 5 minutes or until softened. Add tomato, zest, lemon juice, stock and oregano, stirring to combine. Bring mixture to a simmer. Lay fish over vegetable mixture, cover and simmer for 5 minutes or until fish is just cooked through. Transfer fish to a plate, cover and keep warm.

3. Add peas to pan and cook for 2 minutes or until heated through. Spoon vegetables and broth into serving bowls and top with fish. Scatter over extra oregano and serve with garlic bread.
